    I agree, BD and GB are known. FB is rumored but unconfirmed to the best of my knowledge. The others I have not heard about. Jim

    According to Robert Azpiazu's catalog, the BB and GB mules go for big bucks.

    Well, so far I have none of the regular blocks, but I do have these star notes, do they count?

  • I have a few BB and GB mules, I do not think they are as rare as the book would lead you to believe. I just recently purchased FRN $1 1963 G36582048B pp F1 fp F46 and with bp 443 this is way above the number range in Azpiazu's references. I had to look at it like 7 times just to be sure.

    Well, I looked some more and so far only found STAR notes:

    ==

    A00107991* BP = 445

    B00205361* BP = 444



    E00722511* BP = 397

    F01169755* BP = 447

    G00569126* BP = 422

    H00227711* BP = 419

    I00105891* BP = 444

    J00426601* BP = 406

    K00240271* BP = 439

    L01037788* BP = 447

    Oh yeah, forgot. I'll fix it. And the D* also.

    I was going to PM you about the 61s but since you have them that's good.

    Actually you're right as I've found some Non-Mules much more difficult to find

    Thanks to Jim61 for making available an EA Non-Mule to help me move closer to completing the block set

    That BB Mule is a trophy!

    I'm still looking for 1963 CU or better of:
    KA block non mule w/ bp 448 or higher
    H* block non mule w/ bp 448 or higher

  • mbwizkidmbwizkid Posts: 701 ✭✭✭✭

    Thanks @synchr .
    I noticed in Bob Azpiazu’s guide that it’s the next to the last B-B mule printed.

    Those are just observed highs.

    That run ended at B09600000B.

    I know I have both. I will check to see if I have multiples, probably do. I also have a couple BB mules, may sell one if the price was right. Not CU though, 1 AU and the other VF+
