Seems odd that the National and Ulster stop on an uneven number, you'd figure they'd issue a full packet at a time.
It might be interesting to see what are the highest number surviving examples, maybe from your survey.

Highest numbers recorded for each Bank.

BB09 031623
HA24 018797
MA44 021573
NA44 099713
EA04 076393
PA24 008190
RA28 023717
UA12 043237

There is an exception for the Munster & Leinster, where some unissued £1 notes dated 6.2.40 were retained by the Central Bank, the highest numbered being 50MA 100000.

EDIT: Munster & Leinster info error corrected.
