    British Linen kind of bucked the trend with colours on their notes - whereas the other banks tried to coordinate colours by denomination the BLB stuck with blue for all their notes from £1-£100. It really is an attractive blue, and they look cool when you have whole piles of them like I do of 1950's era hoards of £1 notes. The last date of British Linen quids was 20 July 1970, which was actually a bit aft of when they were being merged with Bank of Scotland.

    Here's a recent purchase of mine that was a long time in the making that my wallet wasn't too fond of.

    Hello everybody I have a few small bills that came with assorted coin collection buys etc. I know absolutely nothing about paper currency. Are any of these worth more than a couple of bucks? I plan on keeping them and maybe down the road learning more about paper notes and start collecting.

    Thanks for any help:) 20210520_204513.jpg 20210520_204522.jpg 20210520_204547.jpg

    Those are some nice notes @Eric the Red. These notes are relatively common, but the 57-A star note and the 28-B $1 silver certificate are both high-grade examples that stand apart from the other notes. For starters, based solely on your photo quality, I'd estimate the 28-B $1 silver certificate to grade somewhere in the range of XF-40. The 57-A star note, on the other hand, would likely merit at least an AU designation.

    I found a few more notes stuffed away both foreign and domestic. Thought i would post them. If anyone could shed some light on any of them it would be appreciated.

    All common notes, unfortunately, but they are still great pieces for a burgeoning collection.

    From top to bottom:

    Weimar Germany 1,000,000 Papiermark Second issue

    Weimar Germany 10,000,000 Papiermark Fifth Issue

    1957-B $1 Silver Certificate: very common worth roughly $1.25.

    1953 $2 Legal Tender Note: very common

    Japanese Occupied Philippines 1 Peso: very common

    Weimar Germany 2,000,000 Papiermarks fifth issue

    With this addition, I’m only lacking the Richmond star to complete the series. I nicely centered 2017A $1 Chicago replacement note.
