Hi Everyone,

 

Whilst cleaning out my deceased mothers home I found some Danish West Indies banknotes.

I am hoping that someone on here could tell me what rhey might be worth and where would be the best place to sell them?

I think I have 11 of the 2 dollarm 1 five dollar, 2 Ten dollar and a few other odd notes.

I appreciate any help you can give me

Wooly - several years ago I answered your questions about these notes - my answers remain the same, although the values are different now (in your favor!). Many auctions have happened since then.

 

2 dalere notes: In XF-AU condition, which you have 6 notes of, they are going for $250 - $400 a piece now. It's a wide range because it's a big market with players who come and go. Your six notes are all in a close range and you even have two which are consecutive - that fact brings a premium with these remainders. Sell the consecutives together and you might get $750 - $1000. This is the most common note from the territory, especially remainders. On the other hand, you have several issued 2 dalere notes. That's a whole other story - these were, and still are, quite rare. They're not in great shape so you have to balance the condition and the values. My estimate would be $250 - $450 per note depending on grade. Your best notes that are issued would go higher, I suspect. I implore you to be mindful of the fact that my estimates are lower than those shown in the links given above because they're asking prices for notes that have NOT sold - truthfully, they're also remainders and yours are issued. Comparing apples and oranges. More like apples and rubies (your issued notes are the rubies :bthumbsup: ).

 

5 dalere note: Tough note. Really nice and yours is in nice condition. You're looking at probably $1,000 - $1,500.

 

10 dalere notes: Even tougher. All of these are usually found in remainder form but you have issued notes; and as the denomination goes up it's harder and harder to find these in issued form. My guess would be that your nicest one, of the three, would go for $1,500 +. The other two I still would say $750 - $1,500.

 

All of my figures are in USD. If you want more info on these, historical or otherwise, don't hesitate to send me a PM. Others, feel free to chime in where maybe I'm off base.

Thanks for the reply Rbethea.

 

Yes I posted questions about these notes a couple of years ago bit I cannot find the forum that I posted the questions to.

Can you please tell me what would be the best way to sell these notes so as to get the best price possible?
