Levine-O'Sullivan Sequence

The sequence generated by the Levine-O'Sullivan greedy algorithm: 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, ... (OEIS A014011). The reciprocal sum of this sequence is conjectured to bound the reciprocal sum of all A-sequences. However, this sequence is not itself an A-sequence.
