Every once in a while, the BEP throws us a curveball. This thread is about series 2006 $5 Federal Reserve notes. Printed over a six month period between May and October in 2007 and consisting of only six blocks on three districts with no replacement notes. What makes this a curveball is, the BEP replaced this series with the new colorized $5, that we use today, but didn’t change the series date. My personal belief is that the BEP wasn’t quite ready to introduce the new colorized $5s, but needed $5 notes to fulfill its annual order to the Fed, so these were printed. A mere 409 million of these “early” 2006 $5s were printed and this six note set represents all six blocks on three districts. In addition, the BEP also offered HF-A and HF-B sheets to collectors.

 Lets re-ask the important question - does a crossover pair for this change exist? Because is so it's a monster, and I wants it precious...

I'm sure that a same serial number pair would be possible, but a changeover, no. 

All notes ending in four or more nines or four or more zeros, were destroyed. 

I was told by an expert in modern currency that Tom Ferguson was not going to change the $5's to colorized. When Larry Felix took over in 2006, he ordered a re design of the $5. This was mainly done as a result of big head $5's being altered into counterfeit $100's.

I have always thought that the non-colorized 2006 $5s are under-appreciated.  

Putting together a block set like this is a fun project.

Well at least they are supposed to be... Would be a sweet changeover dream!

Although I would settle for a 1935 MA non mule to mule as well...

Nice looking $5’s and interesting follow up story by Early Small Size..

Here’s one of my sheets.

Well, a fully identical block/serial pair would be a decent runner up if no changeover exists. A neat esoteric collection there Steve - even if the design itself is a bit meh...

I couldn’t see collecting all the blocks without also including the BEP Money Factory sheets. And you know I love me some sheets.
