Hmm... Good question. I already know how to figure out the answer, so I'll let everyone else figure it out. Enjoy!

Another question:

Doesn't have to do with shinplasters but it does have to do with Rotators how ever.

Does anyone know if in the new Charlton 22nd edition that they are going to have some prices for older series rotator notes?  I thought I had heard some where that they may be going to do such a thing, but that is just hear say? Does anyone know more about this specific question?

Until the GPM22 is released, it would only be speculation. I suggest waiting and finding out for sure.

From what I understand, it is not likely to be in there, for the reason that there truly is not enough o them to determine a market value.  Just like radar notes prior to 1937 or wherever.  Super hard to find, but they do exist....

So nobody has made a guess yet?

All of the requisite information to determine the answer is available in the Charlton guide. A little math and a dash of common sense will get you an answer.

DC-24a - 3
DC-24b - 9
DC-24c - 4
DC-24d - 15

VERY VERY CLOSE!!!!!  but not correct:

There are indeed 31 rotator serial numbers in the shinplaster series, but each number represents a sheet of 10 notes, so there were 310 shinplaster rotators printed.

DC-24a
006900
008800
009600

DC-24b
060090
066990
068890
069690
080080
086980
088880
089680
090060

DC-24c
096960
098860
099660
600009

DC-24d
606909
608809
609609
660099
666999
668899
669699
680089
686989
688889
689689
690069
696969
698869
699669

OK, my answer is x10....... ;D

I had that originally but got confused because of the quantity printed.
So the quantity print should also be x10, eg. DC-24a, quantity print should be 5,100,000, not 510,000. Is this correct?

thx

DC-24a had a range from 000001 to 051000, so 51,000 sheets = 510,000 notes.
Three of these sheet numbers are rotators, so there would be 30 rotator notes in DC-24a.
