I have little use for currency, but enjoy what it can provide in the marketplace.

It's just paper and losing value daily.

Can you tell us something about them, how old are they, what's the history behind them?

two bottom ones r gold notes from 1922,
top 1 is a $1 from 1880.

all are pretty rare and in that condition even more so.

Those are pretty cool, I don't think I've ever seen a gold note before.

When I was a kid, dollars that said "silver note" on the bottom were pretty common. Haven't seen one in decades.

My father had a couple hundred silver dollars hidden{or so he thought}when I was around ten years old{1973}I spent most of them over the time span of two years on baseball cards,wiffle balls&bats,model cars and whatever else a 10 yr old buys.My brother got caught taking a few by my father one day and was accused of taking them all.Boy did he get his arse beat that day.It wasn't until 2007 at the family Thanksgiving dinner that I finally owned up to it..I wonder what kind of $$$ they would be worth today??

I attended a commemorative coin launching last year where they gave all children 12 and under a coin in a special case. A group of young boys headed straight for the vending machines!
