Notes

eBay a lot comprising 39 and 40, both used, offered for $230 and closed with no bids.  Scott values at $800 (June 00).

A lot of both 39 and 40, M, OG, VF, opened for $450 and closed with no bids.  Scott values at $925 for MH (Aug 00).

Used, opened for $190 and closed with no bids (Aug 01).

A lot of both 39 & 40, used, opened for $375 and closed with no bids.  Interestingly, the same seller was simultaneously selling a 39 and a 40 used separately, with an aggregate price for the two stamps, if purchased separately, at less than the opening price for two stamps together (ie $350 compared to $375)!  Sometimes 'quantity discount' doesn't apply.  Or, perhaps more sensibly stated, a premium for a complete set.  Whatever you call it, it still seems counter-intuitive (Aug 01).
