    If you look up Japanese Invasion Currency and Chinese WWII Banknotes there is interesting history to them. Like anything else - they have value to the people who value those kinds of things. There is a facebook page for collectors of these notes. And do note that what is asked on ebaY is often different from what is sold on ebay.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    One is dated 1930 and appears to be printed in the US. Two of them appear to have printed in London and are dated 1936 and 1941.

    I wish you good luck on your adventure with these notes. I lived in Hakata, Japan for 5 months prior to heading to Vietnam. Loved my time in Hakata, had a good gal there, but Nam called and I never looked back. Sometimes I wonder what happened to that gal, but Life happened to me. She sure was a very sweet person, always wished the best for her.

    I've got a few my Pop brought back from WW2 and they're pretty valuable to me regardless of anybody else.
