One would think there would be a way to do this in MM/DD/YYYY format for collectors. 365 (or 6) days x 24 blocks (since they don’t use O or Z) x 12 districts would yield enough notes one would think. Limited supply each year! 🙂

Vachon –

Excellent idea for sure! I would be willing to pay a nice premium for such a note with my birthdate as a serial number. You should let the BEP know of your suggestion.

Happy collecting & Happy Birthdays everyone!
