Could anyone tell me the actual serial numbers of the known *V/V notes?

Does the fact that all of the known numbers end with 99 or 00 indicate that only two sheets actually made it to circulation?

Could you briefly explain how the serial numbers distribution on the sheets work that would lead you to that conclusion?

1) 2726000
2) 3000000
3) 3546499
4) 4361500, 4362500, 4365500
5) 4540500
6) 5088999
7) 5503999, 5504999
8) 5674999

I see seven eight distinct serial number ranges here, indicating a minimum of 7 8 sheets worth of notes in circulation.  Recall that sheets are skip-numbered by 500, so 40 notes on the same sheet can have serial numbers that differ by at most 20000.

A serial number that does not appear in your list is being auctioned at the 2004 T.I.C.F. Auction.

*V/V 5674999

 I do not have a copy of this auction catalogue but if this is the case it should be added to the charlton updates.

Gary,

It is already listed in the 17th Edition Technical Details as the highest serial number seen.

I bought a fine *V/V last year (*V/V 3546499).  I paid about double catalogue price but in this case when only a handful are known, I think the catalogue price is a bit meaningless, as the values are not based upon recent or known transactions.   I note in the catalogue under the *WA $20  where there are only two known - one unc and one fine - that only two prices are listed - one for an unc and one  for a fine. This makes sense to me.  No effort was made to extrapolate what an EF might be worth because if an EF were to show up today I would suspect that it would sell for a very handsome price.
