Any reason to keep notes that are in consecutive order? Serial number wise. WOLF

Not really. Maybe for your own pleasure. A lot of sellers sell consecutive notes because that is how they got them at the bank anyway. I do not believe there is another reason.

Unless there is a fancy SN or a low # they are not keepable,IMHO.

It is true that consecutive notes don't usually carry a premium unless they are older series but that being said there are a lot of collectors who collect runs. Usually I see people who collect runs of 3 to 5 consecutive notes. Again they don't always carry a premium but later on when you try to sell them you will always seem to get a little more for them if you sell them as consecutive notes.

I don't think it collects much, if any, of a premium, but some people like to have several notes, and having them as consecutive serial #s, is a nice bonus. I like to collect them that way.

It might help to make it easier to sell them in the future, but if it is for common FRNs, then only CU notes would really apply and not circulated ones.

I've had more consecutive numbered notes than I could ever need. The newer ones of course can be gotten at the bank, I have a few stacks of $ 1's, $ 2's that I give out to beginning note collectors. As to value of the older ones I have I could not do anything with them so just traded them one at a time.

I had a lot of older 1934 series consecutive numbered notes that no one seemed to want so just done away with them one at a time, still have a bunch of new 1934 series $ 100.00 consecutive notes that I trade off as singles, not here of course as I'm not yet allowed to.

I always let the collector I'm trading with know that I have them in consecutive order but only once did a collector take two of them. Have included a photo of 5 of the $ 100.00, just for those that have never seen consecutive $ 100.00's
