  4. You're right of course, but as a some kind of expert on counterfeits (I manage a counterfeit training team within the bank where I work), I mean that a forgery of a note of such low value, it would not be anything else than a photocopied or printed copy on a regular piece of paper with significant lack of quality. Anyone, even a illiterate dominican pesant could with a closer look determine that it would be a fake - under pressure/stress, even the best could miss one fake note among others. And given that you've taken your time to question the note, taken a photograph of the notes and post a q

  8. Well, say what you want, but my collection is currently stored in photoalbums... No glue or noting I'd like to find a good internet shop for notecollectors supplies where I could find proper albums. Apparently, no disrespect, but the average banknotedealers homepage sucks more or less. Thanx for answers /Matthias Diego
  9. If you don't need the cash, keep it. Otherwise I'd be happy to buy it from you and I'll pay £30 in small notes... No.. Keep it, give it to your offspring. /Matthias Diego
  10. Thank's a lot! But I have to say; There's nothing like coming in from the cold an make a cozy fire an look in my notecollection album and sort some notes...

To answer some of the questions, I work at Stockholm-Arlanda airport, for a company called SEB Ecxhange. We have roughly 42 different currencies in stock and every now and then I get hold of some worthless crap that customers dont want. Usually in poor condition. But the currencies we trade usually comes crisp from the national centralbanks. Another cool thing I get is the release material, booklets, posters and CD's when countries release new money.
  13. Hi everyone! My name is Matthias an I work at a currency exchange office in Sweden. I've been a not-so-serious papermoney collector as long as I can remeber, but the last few years it's been a bit more serious. My collection is more about quantity than quality, due to a thin paymentcheck and the fact is that I get a lot from my customers as a gift or due to the currency they want to change is out of date and I usually offer them a modest private rate. Then the notes rarely in UNC-condition.... Besides that I buy some from the local Red Cross. If there is any current money U would li
