Its amazing how the bad listings have increased in volume... so much junk, so many scammers, so many people listing silly notes for nutty prices...  ie, someone posted dozens of 1976 $2 bills with stamps (granted in 64q holders) for $1976.00...  junk like this is taking over:

Ridiculous.  No wonder all those clueless newbies flood the Facebook groups with junk like this thinking they found something good.

 That's what happens when you get the novice and newbies (as Larry said) that are clueless, time on their hands and the means to do whatever they want. Take that garbage out of the stream of eBay and I'm sure the listing count cuts in half or better.

And to add to it: lots of nice notes that are way over priced. 

All of this stuff will be sitting in park for a long long time.

For a bunch of experts who observe short runs, mules, narrow backs etc, I'm surprised you've missed the reason for the real value. Read all of the listing. These are the ultra rare 50 "Consultative" numbers. This is quite possibly the only set of its type and will never be repeated. I would bid but I've forgotten my ebay password.

The Stamped 1976 $2 bills are like cans of Billy Beer. Everyone thinks that they are worth money but they were among the most saved "collectables" making them quite common.

I have seen a couple of 1976 $2 FRN sets of first day cancels with 50 consecutive notes and each of the 50 State STamps cancelled on them.
That run of 50 is pretty cool, but agree with you on the rest being quite common

Yummy.

I recall that it tasted like crap 40 years ago, can't imagine that it would be any better today.

Didn't mean to disparage the Bicentennial $2s, but they were widely saved. However, the fact is that each post office and stamp constitutes a different example. Add the different districts, stars and fancy numbers and the collecting possibilities are many. They have been unpopular for years but there's good reason for that to change. I think that MaineJoe, Tooky and synchr may be ahead of the curve.

Just checked my history for the past year.  I have only purchased five lots from eBay in the past year!

Just too much junk and overpriced items.
