will BEP print & sell new uncut sheets by EOY?

not terribly surprisingly, uncut currency on the us mint site has been sold out for months now

maybe a little more surprising is that even by today - just about 1 month before Christmas - they haven't put new uncut sheets up on the site

really missing the holiday gifting season sales opportunity

anyone have insight or links to articles discussing the mints/BEPs plans for new uncut currency sales?

    Good question. I have an inside source at the BEP, I’ll shoot them an email.
    On an unrelated subject, how did you get your screen name to print backwards ?

    thanks, mb! I know times are strange, but them not literally printing money to make money around the holidays, when I'm sure they'd do great business is maybe even stranger

    The short answer is "not this year." I spoke to the BEP marketing manager back in September. He told me the Bureau is working exclusively on filling the Fed's orders for currency. All collector material has been suspended. The only people getting into the building are staff directly responsible for printing -- they can't afford to have a Covid outbreak that shuts down the nation's supply of money. We will be lucky if we see a return to collector sheets and prints by next summer.

    Intrigued by all things intaglio.

    My source inside the BEP says it’s extremely doubtful that anything showing as Currently Unavailable will be restocked before EOY.
