I'm not ready to start collecting paper money but I am curious about a few things. How many notes in a brick, for starters?

Just excuse me for a second, I just HAD to throw in this 'red herring':

How many notes in a brick? The answer is: just 'one'.

The old Australian Ten Pound note was colloquially known as a 'brick'. It was the same colour a brick, and the same dimensions. All Australian 'bricks' are valuable, even the least valuable is catalogued around $150 in fine condition today. Nearly 86 million ten pound notes were issued from 1913 to 1966.

there are 100 notes in a brick, a brick of $5s would cost $500.

SWIMS aka Rotator notes, same serial number when turned upside down, the ones I found were $5 I forget the prefix6900069 and $20 I forget the prefix6698699, 127 in each series of 10 million notes, rarer than the 2 digit radars

OK I've heard of those, didn't know what they were called though.

Another dumb question, the replacement notes you found, were they from the latest series of bills and if so how do you identify them?

the replacements I found are ''so called'' replacements as mentioned in the 2011 Charlton book. My last brick of $10s had a nice repeater: BFB2042042, also a nice radar BTZ9805089, also a $20 ARS7405740.

That's a little harder for people to get into, as the lowest banknote here is currently $5. That's 5x times more investment than searching through Ones. Then again when you get a brick you don't necessarily have to search through it because you already know what serial numbers are in there (unless searching for errors). It's a bit hefty. Most people don't have $500 to put into anything, let alone money, hah!

My understanding is that a brick is 1000 notes, while a bundle is 100 notes. A brick has 10 bundles.

There is a canadian forum I came across on banknotes, don't think they like links to other forums here though and I don't remember the address anyway. So are the bricks/bundles only for new bills?

Knight-Dodge signatures on 1986 $5 notes are fairly common, but depending on the prefix it could be worth up to $100. (Whats the prefix on your note?)

Your right twoplustwo, there is also a "Block" which is 5000 notes.

Most of the time, the notes are circulated, but you can try to order new ones from the bank. (They charge a fee to order in notes for you)
