Note: Don’t always look for just the single Note,
I personally like UNC Consecutive pairs.

On the 13th of May 2017 a Single note sold (at auction) for the $50
I won an UNC Consecutive Trio set 20 minutes earlier for $78 + $7 post but combined post on other notes I’d won from this Seller it cost me $80 for the Trio set. Then on the 22 of May a Consecutive pair went for $83 (that I bid on & lost [I should have gone higher] as the numbers were a run on from the Notes I won the week before). But as all Auction prices are for single notes (unless stated when single Notes haven’t gone to Auction) I have not included it.

Update: 8 Consecutive Notes sold on the 30th of November for $121.50
