So I kno a friend of a friend that is selling old paper money and I was looking each one of them up and noticed this one with sequenced serial numbers. I know absolutely nothing about world money but I do know when serial numbers are sequenced like that it does mean something....am I right? help me!!!!! He said to just make him an offer for all the bills but I don't know how much I should offer....

The note you've shown might be considered a minor type of "fancy" serial number (vs. "sequenced") by some, but it is unlikely to carry much, if any, value premium - especially in the heavily circulated condition shown. A fancy serial number such as "663663" (a Repeater) or "663366" (a Radar Repeater) would definitely be of more interest to note collectors.

Commons thank you for informing me of that. He wants $200 for all those bills but they are all well circulated and I look up all the serial numbers and they were just so so for the most part so I don't think it's worth that money at all. Thank you for your help I appreciate it

Also, non-US collectors are not nearly as enamored with serial numbers as US collectors. Unless one of these notes happens to have serial number 000002 or something like that, the collectability would be based on rarity and quality of the notes.

Given the condition of these notes, $200 seems excessive to say the least.

At first glance anyway. Would need to spend some time to go through them as there may be some notes that are worth something. Some of the world note experts here can probably tell you without having to research as I would.

I don't see anything of much value there, $20 for the lot would be more realistic imho. Grade is too low.

with commems & "Orac" although I'm not sure $20 would be appropriate value for the lot. After all, there is one note which may fetch that alone as it appears to be a ONE DOLLAR from Malaya & British Borneo:
http://www.banknote.ws/COLLECTION/c.../MBB0001.htm
& for reasons which completely elude me, these notes are white hot on the market right now. The photograph & condition of this lot is far too poor/sketchy to make a decent "gestimate" of what these would be worth but $200 is definitely way too high.

My motto is "if in doubt" back away (& always go for the best condition you can afford). At least ask for a list of the notes, the apparent grades & some justification for the price he/she desires. You could spend that $200 on a lot better notes IMO.

(On a side note, I see no premium on the note from Laos & agree that appeal for special serial numbers has not really hit the world currency market)
