Some slightly glorious and magical thinking here:

So I ran across this and couldn't help but laugh.

First: They're showing a picture of a 67 EPQ graded note for the listing but they aren't selling PMG graded notes. They're selling a brick of uncirc notes. But don't worry! The picture is for reference only! It isn't meant to deceive the buyer in any way!

Second: At this price, for 5,000 notes, that puts the lot at $2,000 per note. Even if they were selling PMG graded notes these notes would go for ~$200 if you were getting a good price and selling them individually.

And there's 2 available!

It always makes me laugh when I see these things . The simple fact that these things (the 20 trillion, the 50 trillion, and the 100 trillion) can be bought by the brick in uncirc condition is the best proof you should need that they probably shouldn't be going for $50-200 each!

I like this series but I see this and immediately think, "Oh come on now!?!?"

… and 607 watchers! Lots of popcorn I think. :popcorn:

:roflmao:

This can be such an odd series to collect just because there are so many people out there that just don't seem to have gotten the memo that the hype these things had 10 years ago is gone and the supply glut is still real and the bottom fell out of this set.

If I remember right I bought my P-91 about 5 years ago in 67 EPQ for $45 and I think that's one of the few notes in the series going for more now than it did 5 yeas ago.

I laughed out loud when I saw that one.

I'd say you did pretty good, someone just placed a bid on a 68 EPQ P91 with the opening bid starting at $139.99. Still seems high to me for the # graded but people apparently keep sending them in (and buying) as quite a few of the P91's for sale on ebay have the latest generation PMG holders.

I suspect this will always be a head-scratcher, but it's always in the magic of supply and demand. Its funny to think about because back in the day I remember thinking that I'd pay a little more for the P-91 and get it in 67 EPQ (at the time the highest graded and most expensive note in my small set) because it was going to be the "star of the show." Now, looking back at it, I'm glad I got it then because I'd have a hard time spending $140+ for it now.

I ordered a 20-pack of the gold-foil $100 Trillion fakes on eBay for $7 and bought some rigid BCW top-loaders on Amazon. If they arrive in time I think I'll keep one and make the rest cheap, gag stocking stuffers.
