I placed my order today for some of these notes. If any of you get any unique serial numbers, please post 'em here!

Also, I'm temporarily listing the district as San Francisco based on the sample photo.

Does anyone know where it is possible to buy these? The BEP web site says sold out.

Since they are sold out, you'll probably have to purchase them from a dealer or somewhere online such as eBay.
