I have started this topic to track the unique $5 Journey SNRs that appear to be inserted in bricks by the
Bank of Canada and not the banknote printer.  Although these notes have been found in bricks with slight
variations in packaging, there are some commonalities among all reported finds:

a) a random note(s) are missing from the brick and either 1 or 2 replacements with different position
numbers are inserted between the 000 and 001 notes

b) the bricks differ from the standard BABN bricks in their packaging appearance with the following unusual
features having been observed:

     i) bricks are bagged in heavy heat-sealed plastic with the words BoC and the BoC emblem imprinted on
        the bag instead of the normal shrink-wrapped thin plastic.

    ii) the notes in the brick may be in individual 100 note bundles wrapped with standard white BoC bands,
        white and green bands with alphanumeric coding, or no bands at all.

    iii) the bricks are held together with plastic straps reminiscent of bricks prepared by CBN


A hypothesis that is supported by Gilles and myself, and has been put forward by Gary (sudzee), is as follows:

At least 4 prefixes of $5 notes (AOH, AOK, AOM and AOP) are being inserted, not by the printing company,
but by the Bank of Canada itself.  The BoC may be pulling 2 random notes from random bricks for quality
control testing, and inserting these SNRs between the 000-001 notes.

Based on the ranges reported to date, both Gilles and I believe that a block of notes (4 bricks or 4000 notes)
were set aside for each of these prefixes, for this purpose.  As of June 19th, the following SNR ranges had been
confirmed based on multiple independant finds:

AOH (1.083M - 1.086M)                                     3000 notes
AOK (4.080M - 4.082M), (4.083M - 4.084M)          3000 notes
AOM (0.481M - 0.482M), (0.483M - 0.484M)          2000 notes
AOP (7.075M - 7.076M)                                     1000 notes

AOM (0.480M - 0.481M) has been found by a forum member and is waiting confirmation.  The AOK (4.081M - 4.082M)
range was confirmed today by Gilles.  We can assume that the 1K ranges missing from the middle of both
the AOK and AOM ranges do exist, but have not yet been found only because of the random nature of brick
searches.

I encourage all brick searchers to post their search data for these special SNR ranges so the collecting
community can gauge the number of notes being found and the market valuations for these notes.

It is important for collectors to understand that the valuation of replacement notes should not be based on
the size of the replacement note range but on the number of notes found from these ranges.

Brick AOL 4968000 ( 99/99 ) searched June 19, 2007:

Brick was sealed in heavy BoC plastic bag.  The 10 bundles were individually wrapped in the white and
green Bank of Canada paper bands, and all 10 bundles were strapped with two plastic bands.

AOK 4081571 - 572 ( 58/78 ) were inserted between the 000 and 001 notes.  The remainder of the
brick was clean.

Wasn't the BEU notes found in the same manner?

Yes, the BEU SNR was found in the same manner but I excluded it here, as there is already a thread
started for the BEU and a BEU registry on the Wiki site.  It has also been some time since the last BEU
was found while the AOM and AOK SNRs are still being found.

Hi  Arthur

I thought I may want to clarify a little about the AOM 0843 that I have found. 
If I am not mistaken, I may of been one ot he first to find this SNR insert .  characteristics of this was

A.  Note were pack in 1000 notes with no banding separating 100 note bundles.

B.  there was 2 plastic banding on the notes that was tightened very tightly to litterally make all notes in Au condition. 
They were inserted between the Example(1955000 and 1955001).  This banding caused some of of the notes to  have a small tear on one or a heavy banding mark. 

C. the notes that were missing were from the first 500 and from the last 500.  That is correct.

D.  The AOM's that I recieve in  my AOJ had no plastic(B of C or other packaging)  They were just banded tightly.  If I am not mistaken, the new range AOM is  are in the BOC packaging and they are definately packaged differently. 

E.  There was a very short range that the AOM notes were found in.   Between  AOJ1955000-2160000. 

I hope this gives you a little more information to educate the forum members. 

Cheers

Thanks Roland.....I really appreciate you providing specifics about your finds.

The more information we gather the better we will be able to understand the BoC inserted replacements.
