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

It's just paper and losing value daily.

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!

Did you receive your over-due arse beating with interest? Did your brother help?

I needed one but no I didn't.I also told my mother that the Hustlers magazines that she found under my brothers mattress were mine and not his.My Pentecostal mamma was furious over that and grounded him for a month..

To the OP, no old currency in my safes, but I do like looking at it.
Gold and Silver are my hobby....lots of older coins but many many newer ones..PM's excite me and I believe in them.
Just like guns I cannot get enough!!
