Interesting banknote finds!

Okay, this should be a thread for all the oddities and interesting things you've all found in the currency you have in your wallet and in your collection!

 

To start things off, I had a heck of a night! A friend called me from work saying two elderly customers spend some odd looking money. So I went to check it out, and they certainly did spend some neat stuff!)

 

Two silver certs from 1935 that were 3 away from each other in number (no doubt she had the others somewhere, and I wish I could find her again to ask!)

A miscut 1988 $1 note, seems to be fine on the reverse.

And a stack of 20 crisp unc 1985 $1 notes.....But, they appear to be miscut and from the same sequence, when I checked the plates, they all had the same. I guess they cut apart a sheet of bills, and poorly at that! Hah.

Anyway silver cert is worth at least a quarter more than face, regardless of it's condition. Fives maybe a little more, but probably not by too much.

Siblings and coin collecting often conflict. My brother lifted my wheat cents and blew them at the store for some stupid plastic zoo set.

They should have never done away with their rule about graven images of people - especially when it comes to money.

I have had this a long time, have no idea how I got it, other than that at various times I have known of people living in Saudi Arabia that probably brought it back for me sometime.

the 20 bills that are cut poorly..... do you think it might be from a sheet that was cut up??? one thing i have noticed is that any sheet i have has had the first 3 or 4 numbers as "9"

 

I'm 100% certain it's a cut up sheep, the cuts match up, lol. :ninja:

 

 

Btw Grant, someone will surely buy those, even though SC don't bring a huge premium, they are still collectable to most everyone. And anyone just starting a currency collection loves those things! (Even ones who have been at it for years, lol) ;)
