 I owned a 2$  *A/B Beattie-Raminsky in UNC for a couple of years. According to Charlton only 166 400 of these bills were printed. Its value is 75$...which is less than FDY 10$ or other prefixes for instance...Same thing for *A/G...in UNC 45$, Bouey-Raminsky with 60000 printed bills...Should their value be increased?

Value often depends more on demand than the quantity of notes printed.

By the way, the *A/G notes were printed in two ranges. The low range (0320000 - 0380000) had a run of about 60,000 and the high range (3200000 - 3600000) had a run of about 400,000.

You'll find many examples where more recent notes have much higher prices and higher quantities available than some of the older issues.  This is because the DEMAND is considerably higher.

Demand AND supply.  There may be lots of demand for a note, but if there are lots on the market, prices will remain low.

Asterik notes were easlly recognized as inserts and culled from circulation, thus many found their way into collectors hands.  I don't know about you guys, but I had no idea FDY was going to have any significance, and as such, didn't save any.

A higher value for an FDY tells me that more may have been printed, but a heck of a lot less were saved.

There is a thin line between 'hobby' and 'mental illness'.

Some of the asterisk notes that are in high demand are all those in the devils series. In addition others in the modified portrait series that remain high in demand are
1954 $1: *A/M, *V/V, *C/I
1954 $2: *A/B(beattie-coyne), *R/R, *Z/Z
1954 $5: *R/C(beattie-coyne), *L/S, *N/S, *I/X, *N/X
1954 $10: *U/T, *B/V
1954 $20: *V/E
The one that i still think is under-valued remains to be the *R/C beattie-Coyne. With less than 8,000 printed there is a great search for this note. It took me 7 years before i finally found one in UNC and im sure im not the only one who had trouble finding this particular note.

I didn't know for sure Kelly that the FDY prefix would have a such value and I can tell you for sure that some coins shops don't know either...because I bought last week a FDY in Unc for 20$ in eastern Quebec...  ;D

7 years for a * R/C. Harder than I thought!  I have a friend of mine that own 2 *R/C in UNC cond from his grand father collection, the main problem...he is also collector and ask me 500$ (100$ more than the Charlton). I have been thinking for 4 months if I sould buy or not... what would you recommand?? He told me he could sell it easily for 700$ and perhabs more. He has not sold the bill because we are friend for 20 years...he waits my answer...he can still wait...  ;D
