alphabetical sequence notes inside  These banknotes will be worth over face value

Condition

Condition of the notes is always important  the better the condition  the higher the price  A minor
crease on an otherwise mint condition note will drop the value by at least thirty per cent   If you find
a note  look after it and keep it flat. We have had people pin banknotes to letters  devaluing them
