In Need of Pictures

Do you have a currency note and want to know its value? Leave a comment

For some reason this article struck me in my funny bone, I wish they included pictures. It does relate to a posting about bank/exchangers stamps on notes. The hero in the story is the currency exchangers which why you will continue seeing those funny little stamps on the notes.
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – Malaysian police have arrested a Lebanese man allegedly carrying fake currency with a face value of $66 million after he tipped a hotel staff with a $500 note, news reports said Friday.
The largest U.S. note currently in circulation is a $100 bill. But police found bundles of $1 million, $100,000 and $500 notes in the man's hotel room in Kuala Lumpur, the New Straits Times and The Star newspapers reported.
Hotel staff reportedly alerted police Sunday after a housekeeper received a $500 note tip and found out it was fake when she tried to convert it to local currency at a money changer.
The man could be charged for possessing counterfeit money and, if found guilty, face up to 10 years in jail, The Star said. A police spokesman could not immediately give further details.
The largest U.S. note ever printed was a special edition one for $100,000 in 1934. Bills of $500 were last printed in 1945 and are now no longer in wide circulation, according to the U.S. Treasury Department.
This is not the first time the man has been in trouble with the law in Malaysia, the reports said.
A Malaysian court charged him last week with cheating over the sale of office supplies in 2005 in a separate case. Cheating, or fraud, carries a maximum penalty of five years.
Update:
Thanks to Coin Update for finding a picture of these notes, I will be laughing all day long.



The $100,000 look to be a copy of the real $100,000 issued in 1934 and limited only to 42,000 and only for Federal Reserve use.

The $1,000,000 note looks like a modified silver certificate.

I know this is serious but the whole thing seems ridiculous. I feel the most for the woman who got the $500 tip she was ecstatic to get this bill and must have been crushed when she got to the money changer. At least she went to the cops which probably meant she was more angry then disappointed.

Do you have note or currency and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

Hi long time no comment.
My mom was shuffling through her coin bag and found a buffalo nickel. It is SO worn that the year can't be seen, the five cents on the back can't be seen either, but on the front you can still barely see LIBERTY. I couldn't scan it because something's wrong with my HP Director. Do you think you can still say what it could be worth? PS: I couldn't find a D or an S either.

Hi,
I also have three star notes, could you tell me their value?
All three are $1.
2001 C0039457*
2003A J02199691*
2003A F11401947*

These dateless buffaloes have a value of about $0.50.

2001 C0039457* about $1.50

Wow!! I just found this website, and what an amazing service you are providing!! Had just been spending some time going through a bunch of coins with my grandkids, and there were a couple that seemed like they might be worth something--actually found answers to a lot of those (e.g. 1920 Canadian penny) just looking through your archives--great organization there, too!!

One I didn't find an answer to, so I'll ask. I have a 1917-D Buffalo nickel, mint condition (using your description of coin conditions). Any idea what it might be worth??

Thanks for a GREAT website--it's now marked as a Favorite!!

Man said...

1917-D Buffalo nickel, mint condition about $310.00

Thanks for the kind words.

I have a 1974 dollar bill with the printed mint stamp "J" missing from the front and partially on the back with "10". Looks like maybe it was folded when printed? How do I get you a picture of this. J 22413034 A $1
