Hi guys,

You see I have some really old notes with me, as old as Banana money since the Japanese Occupation. Also I have the MALYAN money, also the Singapore Orchid ($50, $55, $1) money.

Is it worth money now? Was wondering if its a good time to let go....

The Malayan Money is " BOARD OF COMMISSION OF CURRENCY MALAYA AND BRITISH BORNEO"

Any ideas on the value??

Thanks!

Everytime pass by The Aldephi from Funan IT Mall's overhead bridge I see a money collector shop or something like that...maybe you can try asking them to valuate for you...

highly dependent on the condition on your notes. if mint or very clean may be worth a bit. like everything else, the worth is dependent on supply and demand.

I used to dabble in the stamp trade (as in buying and selling). I gave up buying from the public because invariable i am faced with albums of "worthless" stamps which is either in bad condition or very common, but which the owner thinks is worth a lot of $$ because "from my father's collection/from the 1960s/first day cover/blah blah".

If you have a collection of notes, stamps, etc especially those "collectibles", do enjoy them as they are, but be prepared that they will not be worth much real cash if you try to sell them.

Those of you interested in finding out more can contact Johnny Lim. HP: 9003 2980. E-Mail: crp192sqn@yahoo.com.sg

I met this guy briefly during a wedding shoot I once did, and found out that he is a professional currency collector/trader. I do NOT know him other than my brief encounter during that wedding shoot.

Perhaps he can offer some answers or opinions.

All the best! ;)
