Quote: I have 3 1954 $2 notes sequential . Does that increase values? Secondly Whats considered the cut off for low serial numbers?
Sequential notes don't normally draw a premium unless they're tough (1935/1937 or 1954 Devil Face series) & possiblya 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].
Quote: Thanks for that response . I have a beattie-coyne $2 * as well but as a lone bill .
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?
