    Default Anyone collect old new notes?

    I wanted to sell my old $50 note to collector. I'm wondering if there's anyone or shop does keep these old notes.

    Mine is brand new notes but in old design.

    The design in front is Benjamin Sheares Bridge. And inside is Coaster Vessel picture.

    Wondering it worth the $ or not. heh

    New old notes you mean?

    As in new pieces of old design?

    Not worth that much at this time, as it is still in circulation.. The bird series will be worth alot =D Esp considering inflation

    the notes has to be in very good condition aka mint, and have nice series number. else does not worth much.

    sometime ago I sold off a orchid series $1000 note for $1500.00 only, it is not worth at all, imagine have a FD of $1000.00 will have how much return with 30years compile interests.

    used to collect notes and coins. one of the oldest i got is a 1904 philippine peso. back then you could buy a week's worth of groceries for a couple of bucks. on top of that, the coin has enough silver in it to kill a werewolf. sigh... money these days don't buy much.

    The notes are basically worth if they are first day covers(for eg. publish unrevealing of a new note in the press), specialised limited edition. Notes also worth if they run in sequence and definately not creased. In singapore, people who collect the notes tend to like the numbers 1, 8 and 9.

    A few years ago, there was this auction in singapore for charity for a new note that had all zeros in it except for the final number which was 1
