This was my father's from the Vietnam war. I dont see a date, but he served 1964-65, and 1965-67. So I would take that this note dates at least those dates or earlier. Just wondering if it has value beside sentiment. I have alot of foreign currency from my time and my father's time in service. Would just like to learn some information on it.

Hiya, your note (Pick#1) was actually first issued in 1955, but would have still been the circulating 5 Dong in the periods you mentioned, along side a dull-red note also depicting the farmer with buffalo. By the late 1960s, inflation in South Vietnam meant that the spending power of this note was quite low, and as such, it would have made a cheap little souvenir.

As for value today, the sentimental value will definitely exceed what you would get monetarily for it, as it only catalogs .10c in this condition.

Hope this helps!

Thank you! Yes the information on the note is still exciting to me. I actually do like the picture depicting the farmer with the bufflo working the rice field. I'm know the condition is awful probably from the environment and war at the time, plus he was infantry. Thank you again..
