Low serial for Canadian notes is 0000999 or less.
Consecutives will sell more easily and for slightly more than individually.
"Dipping" is not considered cleaning...

You can always try to get a premium, # numbers under 1000 but most of the time if the serial is not under 100 not many collectors care

The first line. Covers everything but the second and third line. eBay sold is always better for actual prices of course.

Also make sure you are under the correct signature *A/B Beattie-Coyne are worth considerably more then the signature you have which is Beattie-Rasminsky *A/B

Sequential notes don't normally draw a premium unless they're tough (1935/1937 or 1954 Devil Face series) & possibly a set of asterisk replacements.

I've bolded "possibly" & underlined "set of replacements" because first, it will depend on your audience (newbie or seasoned collectors?) & 2nd it will depend on your replacements (tough or easy?) For easy to middle of the road EF-AU replacements, the majority of collectors would expect to pay LESS. (Just think bulk buy). For UNC that are tough & scarce, they may pay more. Especially if they were listed on one of the more upscale auction platforms (Spinks/HA).

The *A/B are much better than *B/B or *A/G & all the Lawson- Bouey replacements but they're not Beattie-Coyne nor *R/R (nor the impossible *Z/Z) so they sit in the middle- luke warm territory.

If you are selling these 3 notes to FB Groups of newbies you might get a bit of premium, especially if they're in UNC. But on ebay, you're likely to get less & would probably be better off to sell them separately.
[Just my 2 cents. Nice notes IMO & hope they're in good UNC condition. Put them in a currency sleeve].

-No problem.

BC-38bA Beattie Rasminsky *A/B (188,000) $2 in EF -$24 AU -$40 [With such a low print run, you'd expect higher BV but I've seen sequential runs like yours before so many were caught & that's why they're in the "luke-warm" territory)

BC-38aA Beattie Coyne *A/B (24,000) is much tougher & the only Beattie Coyne replacement. I've seen quite a few in UNC but no sequential runs (like the BC-38bA) & it likely has world demand. Book values range from VG-$25 to G UNC-$600.

Do you have a picture? What grade do you think your note is in?

Very nice. Now please carefully place the notes in currency sleeves. These notes are too collectible to be leaving them in an album (or whatever they're in at the moment).

Here is a link to several sellers who sell them on eBay:
https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nk..._sacat=83274
You can also buy them at your LCS or online at a dealer such as WIZARD (where you can find the pages too):
https://www.wizardcoinsupply.com/pr...ncy-sleeves/

Paper has chlorine & chemicals that can leach into the note. You also must avoid any plastics as they can have PVC which also will deteriorate the paper.

Paper = BAD
PVC-free (mylar) currency sleeve = GOOD (well protected)

(& so ends my sermon for the day)
