depends to where you sell them and the rarity of each banknote. you can view auctions past sales section on this site to get an idea

One thing about catalogues is that they are
only guides
There are many variables to what you may receive for a note in the open market
And supply and demand is usually a good indication of what will or won’t sell close to or above catalogue prices
Auctions (some) May give you better exposure but remember the costs involved
And whether or not you can have a say as to whether or not your item can have a reserve bid or not and if it does not sell
Do you still have to pay any commissions etc
Selling more common bills on a forum like this may give you a fair price with no fees
As unlike eBay the numerous fees etc can deter some buyers from paying what you would like to get out of the note
Bottom line I have seen notes go for less than half of catalogue prices as well as go for multiple times catalogue price
It just depends on the sellers motivation to sell and a buyers determination to get that note
Good luck
Always remember that Atleast on a forum like this you can ask a price and if not happy just not accept it
You may not have this option with some auctions
