Yes, banknote prices do go up, but not always on a slow steady incline. Take any banknote over a 15 year period and you can almost guarantee it will have benefited from a considerable price rise. However, while that banknote has benefited from a gain in value, that doesn’t mean that every owner of that note experienced the same gain. It’s all about timing.
I believe this method will give you a better guide on the “real sale value” of your banknote.
And also, a much better guide as to what you might pay for a banknote [at auction].
CV may only be used for one thing, and that is for the insurance value of your banknotes.
Theses are the rules I have used to determine “Auction Prices”.
There obviously needs to be a guideline set, and this is what I have chosen.
All Auction Prices listed here are for banknotes that meet the following criteria:
1] Auctions for single notes only
2] There must be 5 or more bids
3] No half grades [aEF or VF/aEF or EF++ almost aUNC]
4] No repeater or radar serial numbers
5] eBay sales must have return option
6] No sellers from Singapore
I will list the highest price attained [and also the lowest]
