This image comes from a Facebook forum. The person who reported the note found it 2 weeks ago and spent it without checking the serial number. GME may be the changeover prefix.

Had a Wilkins- Poloz in 4 Mil range
- I got one! GME 8957450 with Wilkins-Macklem signature. Thanks for the heads up (as it would have been spent for sure).

Added Wilkins/Macklem $50 to the database.  I set the changeover to 8M pending further information.  If you find notes close to the changeover please post them here so we can narrow down the changeover point!

Last week I submitted a question to the BOC about the $50 GME signature changeover and got a response today:

Good day,
Thank you for your email.
The first $50 note printed with the Macklem-Wilkins signature pair was GME6255015.
Kind regards,

I'm surprised they actually replied to your request about the changeover! Kudos to them for good public relations

You can see it's not the same signature sample he used a decade ago.  Very similar but not identical.
