 I am seeing replacement notes 1000 apart a couple of times but never 10,000 apart.
 How much would this set of six notes be worth?
 Has anyone ever seen anything similar?

Notes from the same sheet would be numbered 1000 apart as you go from note to note, and all on that sheet would end in the same last three digits.
That is why your notes differ by 1000 and not 10000.
How they managed to stay together, or become reunited, subsequent to issue is the mystery.

Bob the two notes on the bottom ARE ten thousand apart  from each other as well as the two center notes.
In my mind this is what makes them so rare as a set. I hope someone can throw an estimate on value for me.
The reason that these notes are together is because I've had them in my safe deposit box for more than 25 years.

These are nice notes.  I am not overly confident many people would pay a premium for this feature.  I ll use convective notes as an example: most people look for one note copy and buying a lot sometimes does not appeal to most people.  Having said this, someone may appeaciate the serial number gaps but I would not personally pay a premium nor would I buy a duplicate.  I am sure you will get decent money for these notes; whether it's together or separately.  What other surprises do you have (I seen you posted some low serials on a different thread)

I can't see the signatures, but my guess from what's visible on the last note is Crow and Bouey. Which makes it worth max $20 each in Gem condition. I don't see anyone paying that, when they are not certified.

Maybe a sequential collector might pay more, but I don't see a substantial premium being paid.

I hope I wrong. Thank you for sharing.

The best way to find out what they are really worth is to put them up on live auction through a large auction house (like TCNC or eBay etc)

Nice set!  However, to be honest, I thought this was the norm rather than the exception.

Not sure how the notes came to be together.  I take it you bought the notes and didn't find them yourself.  However I've frequently seen X replacements available in groups that appear to be from the same sheet.

I have birds $2 EBX 3493496 and 3494996 (1500 apart) as well as $5 FNX 8314360 and 8315860 (1500 apart).  I haven't seen too many 10,000 apart but I don't see why anyone would pay a premium for that any more than they would pay for notes that are 10 apart or 100 apart or 1000 apart.

On another note, I'm surprised you don't have 500 increments in your set since I thought those notes were skip numbered by 500 rather than 1000.  Somehow you ended up with every second note in the sheet for some reason.

I'm very dooubtful about finding all the six notes from individual bricks (maybe two if very lucky), so the best explanation is that the notes were cut (very carefully) from a sheet and some notes 1000 notes apart could have been sold together as a set or something like that...
