There have been no reports of replacements or column sorts for sometime now.  We can only

speculate that the Bank has changed its printing procedures to eliminate replacements and

column sorts.  We, as collectors, will be vigilant in seeking out these notes, but, it may be we have

seen there demise.  Two bundles of five pound notes we have obtained direct from the Bank

via De la  Rue are bound with a digitally printed  De La Rue wrapper bands.  When you think about

it, what is the point of replacing a damaged sheet with a replacement numbered sheet, costing

time in printing and labour when you can just calculate the number of good sheets printed that

day and so on, until you have completed the quantity required.

The digital age has arrived and replacements and column sorts may be the first casualty.
