Hey elwood...

Here's another one for sale on a more famous auction site....probably belongs to the person who found the original note or notes that started this whole episode. 

BTU 2190161

Starting bid   $1000......reserve not meet...so who's willing to bid it up to see what the reserve is???

Well it looks like he's now selling both his notes starting at $2000.

I was just perusing eBay's Canadian banknotes and came across a Toronto seller who has just listed 2 consecutive BTU 10.00's printed on the 20.00 paper stock. He is looking for 2,000.00 and was just curious if any members think this price is within reason considering the rarity of these new "Error note" ???.

I don't understand why sellers of such notes don't let the market decide.   ???

Even in less than ideal market conditions-- the error collectors should be the ones who (in putting hard cash where their mouth is) determine the estimated worth of such an error.  Afterall, it's not as if there are a lot of desirable notes up for sale these days.  Why should an online auction be started at some inflated starting bid when you don't even get a chance to view the said item?  ::)

There has been mention of a possible brick or other such finds for the BTT/BTU $20 paper error.  It occurs in 2 prefixes & others are beginning to surface.  Unfortunately (like the fortunate few who had the 2003 BER hoard of notes) it seems as if such sellers are putting the horse before the cart in forcing the market value of such a rarity.   They believe that dressing their sales up with all kinds of superlatives (such as "one of a kind!") will create a frenzy of buyers (& that all paper money collectors desire error notes!)

I believe most serious error collectors would prefer to have a "wait & see" approach or perhaps even dream that they will soon find such a rarity (an inside deal), before they would  stomp all over the listing you mention.  I may be wrong but I do believe most of us prefer to see a true auction style sale.

First it was one note with a start of $1000.
Then it was two notes with a start of $2000.
Now it's two notes with a  $5000. start and an unknown reserve.
Seems like this seller can't make up his mind.
Sounds just like the posts from back in April on the same items.
Other than finally providing us with all or some of the serial #s ....seems like a waist of our time.
Just my opinion

The market will eventually decide. 
I think there is a mania that he/she is trying to capitalize on.

Re: all these numbers being reported, this directly pertains to us realizing that they did not grab a full brick quantity.

I don't have the data so I have no comment at this time, but the data is important.
