I received private messages from some users who could not enter notes due to incorrect FPN/BPN combinations.  If you have encountered this problem can you please post what the FPN/BPN were?

I just got an HOD $5 (printed in 2004) & it has FPN 10 & BPN 10. Only 36 were reported on the SNDB (likely b/c the database was started after the original Journey).  The position pair table for 2006 notes is 10/14 or 14/10.  Did the original journey have a different position pair pattern?

This 2004 HOD $5 with the same Front & Back position numbers (10) seemed odd to me (didn't fit the 2006 pattern).

(I believe I encountered this years ago, when the SNDB was just a few years old, but I have forgotten what note it was).

Some early, pre-security CBN $5s and $10s cannot be entered into the SNDB because it was created after most of those notes were long gone from circulation and I could never find the sheet layout for them to determine what FPN/BPN combos were valid.  I even put a note about it on a little graphic on the Add Notes page.
