DB cooper bill

Hey. I've been wondering for sometime, what do you think a full Brian Ingram DB cooper bill is currently worth. It's been a while since I've seen any show up for sale.

Thank you

    I’ve only seen pieces. They typically sell in the $3K - 4K range.

    Yeah same. But even with them I haven't seen any sell for some time. Minus the two small fragments listed on ebay for $10-$20k

    never seen them go that high. usually 2-3k depending on how little or how much is missing on the note

    The sales that you are talking about are they fairly recent? Like within the last 5 years or so.

    Thankyou

    Yeah that's the only ones I can find. The ones going for 1100 were just the pieces. A full bill with the sn should command way more especially with all the recent interest in DB, Netflix.

    From my research only 70 full bills exist in public hands and the same guy owns 55 of them. Its a very rare piece. The Honus Wagner of bills

    When I went the Whitman expo, I saw some of them, and the dealer said he owned half of all the notes. He wanted 10-15k for a note.

    Thankyou.. was this recently?

    I'm pretty sure I know the dealer you are referring to. I've read about him, the family that found the bills have been selling them to him over the years

    Sounds like he might be cornering the market on these bills perhaps?

    Yes. But if that's the case why wouldn't he sell one or two in a public manner. At the very least to show what they are worth. The last one that was sold was 2016 and went for 10k on ebay. I can't see him still only asking $10-15k for a full one

    Actually half of the notes, would only be 25% of the notes recovered.
    Folks keep forgetting they were split with the insurance company
