I am just wondering if anyone who collects Journey insert notes feels that inserts found with serial numbers close to the start or end of a confirmed range should have a higher value than those that are not...
Also, how close should they be if you think they should be worth more?

I'm not even capable of a guess because I don't know on what the value of inserts is based.  I think a number close to the end of a range is going to make an insert slightly more salable, but I'm not sure the price would be higher.  I base this on experience... I've sold plenty of inserts but rarely could I get anything close to book value.

Personally I have never sold an insert for more based on the fact that it is close to the start or end of a confirmed range either....the reason I brought this up is because I noticed on GP's pricelist for March there is an example of an insert near the start of a range that is priced higher than one not near the start ...

A little off topic. Is it true  that for the 1954 series ,you will never find a normal range replacement note numbered 001 or 999 ?

Hey squid,

I would have to think that if it was the highest or lowest known number then it might demand a little bit of a premium but otherwise any others would not make a difference, in my opinion.

The note is a sheet replacement  AAN 1040 - 1160
Gem $40.00   and AAN 1040148 GEM is $45

I do not believe that this range is any more or less difficult to obtain than other ranges and I know that the difference in price is only $5, but ...5 bucks is 5 bucks :)

I wouldn't put a premium on Gilles' note.  It's not that close to the range boundary.

I had $5 AOV 5399979, twenty notes removed from the end of the range, and I got about $10 for it in EF condition.  That's a good price for an EF, methinks.

I currently have $10 BFF 3639985, fourteen notes from the end of the range.  It never occurred to me to ask for a premium.
