COMMENTS
For the definition of k-digit half-palindromes, see A191279. Although there exist infinitely many polynomials taking only 3-digit half-palindrome values (see comment to A191279), only two polynomials are known with all values 4-digit half-palindromes. They are the polynomials P(n) which were discovered in SeqFan Discussion list from Mar 14 2011 and its double.
The sequence lists values of P(n). All these are odd. For a given k>=5, up to now it is unknown if there are polynomials taking only k-digit half-palindrome values and it is unknown whether there exist infinitely many such numbers.
Conjecture. For every k>=2, there exists a polynomial of degree k taking only k-digit half-palindrome values.

FORMULA
a(n) = (2*n+2)(14*n+9)^3+(3*n+3)*(14*n+9)^2+(5*n+3)*(14*n+9)+(2*n+1) = (2*n+1)*(14*n+11)^3 +(5*n+3)*(14*n+11)^2 +(3*n+3)*(14*n+11) +(2*n+2), such that the bases b < c are b=14*n+9, c=14*n+11.
G.f. -x*(52029+56580*x+30010*x^2-8636*x^3+1729*x^4) / (x-1)^5. - R. J. Mathar, Jul 01 2012
