Consecutive Base Baffle (Posted on 2013-12-04) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Determine the smallest positive integer which is a palindrome in precisely 3 consecutive bases (excluding base 10). What are the next two smallest positive integers with this property?

*** Any solution must have more than one digit in any given base. So, trivial solutions like (0)base 3, (2)base 5 or, (C)base 14 are not allowed.

*** "Excluding base 10" means that the sequence of bases 9,11,12 for example, does not count as a possibility and, the bases have to be truly consecutive and all be on one side or the other of 10.
