COMMENTS

There are 5! = 120 terms in this finite subsequence of A030299.
It would be interesting to conceive simple and/or efficient functions which yield (a) the nth term of this sequence: f(n) = a(n), (b) for a given term, the subsequent one: f(a(n)) = a(1 + n (mod 5!)).
From Nathaniel Johnston, May 19 2011: (Start)
Individual terms a(n) can be computed efficiently via the following procedure: Define b(n,k) = 1 + floor(((n1) mod (k+1)!)/k!) for k = 1, 2, 3, 4. The first digit of a(n) is b(n,4). The second digit of a(n) is the b(n,3)th number not already used. The third digit of a(n) is the b(n,2)th number not already used. The fourth digit of a(n) is the b(n,1)th number not already used, and the final digit of a(n) is the only digit remaining. This procedure generalizes in the obvious way for related sequences such as A178476.
For example, if n = 38 then we compute b(38,1) = 2, b(38,2) = 1, b(38,3) = 3, b(38,4) = 2. Thus a(38) = 24153 (2, followed by the 3rd digit not yet used, followed by the 1st digit not yet used, followed by the 2nd digit not yet used, followed by the last remaining digit).

FORMULA

a(n) + a(5!+1n) = 66666.
floor( a(n) / 10^4 ) = ceil( n / 4! ).
a(n) = A030299(n+33).
a(n) == 6 (mod 9).
a(n) = 6 + 9*A178485(n).
