If I can get them for a low enough price, I get them, send the data to the project organizers, and hope for a match. However, if I can find a full BEP pack of them, I do whatever I can to get the whole pack.
What I did for this last match, was use the entire project spreadsheet to look up notes I come across to see if it's counterpart has already been found, in this case it had been so I bought the matching note from the store in Germany.
No matched pairs have ever been offered for sale yet, so no predictors there. But future value for an individual note not paired up, I don't see that having any special future value.
But there's the issue, say you had the chance to get the DC note 12345678, passed on it, then later someone adds the FW note 12345678 to the project, then that's a lost out matched pair. Does that make sense? I think I have over 6000 of these notes, hoping to make matches against the odds, of this rare error by the BEP.
To me, the value is in the sense of accomplishment as a collector, in beating the odds and bringing together two notes that shouldn't exist together.
Sorry I can't help put a monetary value to it or it's future value.
