    I have recently been given an envelope full of notes from my aunt that belonged to my late uncle.
    Trying to help out and see if there is anything in there that is collectable or if they should be moved on as they are.
    Research will be done myself but, i am not familiar with paper money markets so will appreciate any input or advice.
    I am fully expecting a lot of it to be modern not collectable junk, there may however be a few sleepers worth more than a £1.
    Here are few snaps i took last night of some, i will get them better organised tomorrow and post more pics.

    You can get face value for the £5 and 10 Shillings at most banks or Post Offices, The $2 is spendable and the big Russian one is very common.

    Love the detective work involved in something like this. When you are able to post individual photos of notes you think may be collectables, I'm sure the members here can help you. While I have some foreign currency, I'm certainly not an experienced collector of them, but will try to help you in any way I can. Good front and back photos in full image would be the best.

    I see a Japanese 1000 Yen Series D reverse mixed in there - the one with the dancing cranes. 1000 Yen equals about $10 US, but the older Series, such as the "D," can sell for a little more depending on condition.

    I can't really tell the color of the serial number on the Japanese 1000 Yen note, it looks brownish from the picture, but here is how to tell the rough date by the color of the serial number:

    black: issued 1984
    blue: issued 1990
    red: issued 1993
    brown: issued 2000 to 2003

    It is black @ewomack, strange how it looks gold/ brown in the picture.
    Thanks again for taking the time to post info.

    The 10 shilling note has some collector value- approximately $7-$8 if it's crisp, like the one you've got. The 5 pound note is also valuable- you might get $15-$20 for it.
    (So, probably not worth exchanging them.)

    The 500 rouble note- $13-$15. Not very expensive. 25 rouble note- maybe $9/$10.

    The Guernsey fiver is worth around $10, according to Ebay.

    Irish pound- $6-$7

    Canadian twos are worth face ($3 USD), and the 30 D Marks I see are worth 15 Euros if you are able to exchange them in Germany.

    Great stuff @Legomaster1, much appreciated.
    From the look of it so far there are some of fair collector value, others are worth face in their own country.
    There are 3x $2 US & Cad, 2x 500 Rouble & 2x 25 Rouble
    A pile of Turkish, Italy, Kenya and some other singles.
    I dont want to go over the top by posting all of them so will pick out the best of the rest and post those.

    Thanks again for taking the time to help out guys, much appreciated.

    I have discussed and explained to my Aunt everything about the notes and she asked me to thank those that took the time to help out, Thank You.

    The decision has been made to let them go as a job lot, i dont have the time nor the patience to try and piece them out individually so we are willing to let someone else have that pleasure.

    My request of you is, what would be a sensible price to list them for ?
    We are willing to leave plenty of meat on the bone as an incentive to buy, just not sure what would constitute a fair price for all concerned.
    Any help with this will be greatly appreciated, via PM is ok if you dont want to post here.

    Thanks again.

    In your original post, the bank note in the bottom of the bottom photo is from Thailand.

    Good try @Charles Ruge but, the left one is Sweden & the right one is Iran with the Shah on it.
    This crash course i have been on has not been wasted.

    List them for $25 starting bid, so you’ll attract some bidders. If people can see the D Marks, Irish pound, and British notes, then they’ll be likely to pay more.
