III - Insert (Replacement) Notes and Ranges
The following regulations are in place to strengthen the integrity and reliability of insert range data.  False or misleading information, and even authentic information disseminated by various other sources, serves to undermine the overall integrity of the data, produces extensive confusion, and impairs collector confidence in insert notes.
  • All posts made to the forums (in the Trading Post or otherwise) concerning insert replacement notes must refer to the specific insert ranges and must refer to their status as being "confirmed" or "unconfirmed", and any posts mentioning confirmed ranges must cite their source.
  • For the purpose of this requirement, "confirmed" means any insert range that appears in any of the following publications:
    • The current edition of the Charlton Standard Catalogue of Canadian Government Paper Money
    • The most recent issue of the Canadian Paper Money Society Newsletter
    • Any bi-monthly mailed list from Gilles Pomerleau no older than two months prior to the publication of the current Charlton catalogue
  • Any insert ranges which have been stated verbally by any source do not qualify as confirmed ranges. "Unconfirmed" means any insert range which is not "confirmed".
  • No post may refer to the name of Gilles Pomerleau in the context of unconfirmed insert ranges.
  • Any posts which refer to insert ranges without stating the "confirmed" or "unconfirmed" status or are otherwise inconsistent with the above regulations may be removed or edited at the discretion of a moderator.

A few simple examples of valid posts are:
  • For sale: Two APX inserts, 0123566 and 0123567 (APX 0.122-0.124M, GP Mar 2009). $45 for the pair.
  • Just found two new APX inserts: 0246855 and 0246856 in a brick of APR. These are unconfirmed insert notes.

The above has been adopted into the CPMF Code of Conduct as of June 19, 2009.
