Question by Danny Sogar: Is old foreign money from WWII worth anything much in the U.S.?
I have a lot of really old Japanese, Chinese, I think Arabic, and other foreign (paper) money from WWII dating as far back as 1918. Is it worth much? If so, where would I go to trade it in?
Answer by Scott Stevenson
The value of any old currency to a collector is going to depend on exactly what it is, and what condition it’s in. Some of it can be quite valuable, while other pieces might end up being worth less than a dollar.
Most of the countries you mention have changed their monetary systems since WWII, so their old currency is generally not convertible to dollars at a currency exchange. If you want to dispose of it, you could put it up on e-bay, or you could take it to a coin dealer, and see what he or she offers you for it.
