    ill post the dates of the bills as some are older and some newer once get the bills organized better.

    The oldest are the Japanese government money (1943-1944) the rest of the world bills date from 1954-1998.

    Most of them seem to be common notes but it is a good selection. Be very careful handling them as the uncirculated ones will easily be damaged by improper handling.

    Well worth $5.

    Nice pick up for $5. Do you have a focus of your bank note odyssey? Wear cotton gloves as you want to get the crisp uncirculated notes into a binder without stains, latent prints, creases or worse. Peace Roy

    no particular focus at the moment.. i may if find more bills.. am mostly into sports but i grab the coins and bills when they show up at the 2nd hand shop near me. am waiting on bill sleeves to arrive from ebay at the moment but the mail is a tad slow showing up right now.

    Not bad for $4.99 but I doubt if there is anything in there but very common notes. Most of the Unc. notes are probably inflation notes which were printed in huge numbers. I recall being at an ANA convention show back in the late 1980s or early 1990s at which a dealer had a table piled high with stacks of inflation notes from South American countries.

    All glory is fleeting.

    I figured they weren’t worth a lot. They still look nice though especially the patterned ones . Going to holder them once the sleeves arrive so the unc don’t get damaged.

    Where is the Value Village located? We don't have anything like them near me in the Philly area, and I RARELY see anything packaged in the way of paper money or coins (from another one of your posts?) in any second-hand, consignment, etc shops around here. Reminds me of the grab bags of stamps the old Woolworth's used to sell in their stamp/coin department way back in the 60's & 70's...............

    Much fun for little $.

    The Widows Mites and nice framing is a deal at $6, too.
