Has this question been answered yet? Does this prefix have confirmed inserts either from fellow collectors or the BABN. I also wonder if it will be confirmed in the upcoming Charlton's 18th edition.
It appears there was talk on this subject but it died out without any resolution to the question.  :o

BKZ?!!! :o :o :o  You really mean BKZ?
Are you sure that you're not speaking about BJZ instead?

BKZ is a prefix very far in the serie and usually, when the printers put inserts in bricks, they usually take a prefix no more than three or four prefixes ahead or behind from a given prefix.
For example, EJE inserts is used in prefixes EJA through EJE, EYI inserts is used in prefixes EYG through EYJ, BEK inserts 2003 in prefixes BEK through BEP (it's five prefixes, but it's a short run printed in 2003).
So I would be very surprised to see a prefix insert taken so far in the serie.  In the case of 100$, BKZ is so far away and there is not many prefixes emitted in each yeay that were even not sure that it will still be Jenkins-Dodge signature that it will be used a this moment....

Ok OK you just proved I really need to go back to bed and not try to think at so early in the morning. It should have read BJZ Inserts, but I am lousy typist and I don't always proof read what I post. So yes you caught me and my big fingers making an error in the title without proofing.
Please "fogive me master it won't happen again." I hope anyway. :D

No BJZ notes have confirmed insert notes as of yet. I have great doubts that any of these BJZ notes will have confirmed inserts.

Thanks,  :-[.  I wasn't even sure about the existence of any BJZ inserts, you answer me.

Well JB - 2005 I am not so sure as you are. I don't know where you are getting your information but I personally have knowledge of an auction on EBAY that indicated BJZ were in fact possible inserts and highly sought after as well.
Front and back plate numbers of the note in question also has the distinction of bearing the number 99.
I am also aware it was sold by another member on this site that is quite knowledgable and frequently offers top notch products at reasonable prices.
So maybe it will be an insert after-all. ::)
