Good recommendation. I scratched a good coin with a staple.

I scratched a really nice BU Mexican 1932 peso. I was so excited that I tore it out of the 2x2, not realizing that I the staples were sharp and sticking out. LESSON LEARNED
The US also has the oldest legal postage stamps. We haven't demonetized any stamps since the Civil War.
Wow, I didn’t know that! That’s pretty awesome.
I had asked the tellers at my local bank branch to save me any unusual stuff such as "large dollars" (you never know). This past February someone cashed in 60 circulated Ikes. I bought all of them. Yes, I know they have little premium over face, but they were a seldom-seen coin and the last large sized dollar coin meant for circulation.
I checked yesterday and it was 14 cents on 1 lira. 1750000 is over a quarter million usd
Do you know if there's any stamps worth alot of money? I have a collection book of old Golden stamps with certifications and everything
"Golden" stamps? Can you show a picture? BTW, the bottom totally fell out of the stamp market about 5 or 6 years ago. I used to be a dealer. I have a really nice collection from Greece that won an award at a local show many years ago, that was worth in the mid 4-figures not too long ago. I'd be lucky to get a tenth of that now. I've been inactive in stamps for several years.
That is for TODAY'S lira. The lira you have are completely devalued and "worth" only a few cents per note.
1960s – 1 U.S. dollar = 9 Turkish lira
1970 – 1 U.S. dollar = 11.3 Turkish lira
1975 – 1 U.S. dollar = 14.4 Turkish lira
1980 – 1 U.S. dollar = 80 Turkish lira
1985 – 1 U.S. dollar = 500 Turkish lira
1990 – 1 U.S. dollar = 2,500 Turkish lira
1995 – 1 U.S. dollar = 43,000 Turkish lira
2000 – 1 U.S. dollar = 620,000 Turkish lira
2001 - 1 U.S. dollar = 1,250,000 Turkish lira
2005 – 1 U.S. dollar = 1,350,000 Turkish lira
While at the time, in the 1970s, your amount of lira would have been worth a fortune in USD, they are currently both devalued and obsolete, meaning that they have no monetary value other than what you can sell them for as collectibles.

I think he means the FDC's which also have a gold leaf replica of the stamp on the envelope. They were all the rage 30-40 years ago.
30-35 years ago is when I got out of dealing...and I didn't deal in FDCs so I don't know...
Unfortunately I do not have any pictures. The collection is with my sister in another state. But they are American, they are golden replicas of old stamps. Not sure the years. They come with envelopes marked with the original dates and stuff.... I can try to get her to take and send the pictures. I am pretty sure they are stamps of the 50 states.
Yes they are just like that. I have a whole book of them and also several outside of the book
Most, even high end Ikes will cost about 25$ unless like already said a variety.
Really don't think the green comes off that is much to advanced to remove.
As you can see, these notes are no longer in circulation, having been replaced by coins.
