If you collect bird notes, there are none better. Robins, Belted Kingfisher, Osprey, Common loon, Snowy owl, Canada Goose. These are all gem quality specimen notes with exce.Ptional paper quality (EPQ) graded by PMG. The specimen notes were issued. In the November 2000 Bank of Canada Sale.
On page 334, this reference has a chart with the total quantity of each note by denomination that was issued. It is very important to know that the red 0416 is a unifying number that clearly shows that this is a set as issued.It is NOT a set made up of individual notes bought separately. However, I have not been able to independently verify this number. In my mind, at any rate, this information, taken as a whole, is a good barometer of how difficult it might be to acquire a high grade set like this one.
