Note: Don’t always look for just the single Note,
I personally like UNC Consecutive pairs or better….
#July 2017 was a big month for these at auction, with notes sold (at auction) for the$19 to $37 reached on a Single aUNC Note.
On the 8th of July;

  1. A VF Note sold for $10… ???
  2. #I won an UNC Run of 15 Notes for $157 ($10.47 ea)

On the 9th of July Two UNC Runs of 10 Notes went off for:

  • $149 {$14.90 ea}
  • $188 {$18.80 ea}

But as all Auction prices are for single notes (unless stated when single Notes haven’t gone to Auction) I have not included it in above Table.
It’s cheaper to buy Multiples & maybe split up & resell covering the cost of the Notes you want to keep…
