I have submitted the following sequence (which has yet to appear in the

(I have also submitted the sequence of {the nth term above divided by 

Could someone please calculate/submit the sequence of terms from the 
above sequence (if extended) that are not the composite (in the run of 
composites between adjacent primes) with the most number of divisors?

For example, all terms I give above, except the 68, are also one of the 
composites (between adjacent primes) which have the most number of 
divisors in their run of composites.
So the sequence I am wondering about starts:
