You can come to A Village Stamp & Coin to sell your paper money. We buy all kinds of paper money, from the lowest grade to the highest grade stuff.

What I’d like to tell you, and show you is what we buy in stuff like this. You see a lot of it. This is in my three-for-a-dollar bucket. Alright? And people love to dig in here and just take little souvenirs home. Now understand, when you come in with this kind of stuff, you’re not going to make much money on this. This is really cheap. I mean reallly cheap. You know it’s pennies is what we pay for stuff like this.

Let me show you something a little bit better than that.

Right here we have, everything in this case is a dollar. These are notes that are a little bit better. Stuff, that you know, here’s an old German note from World War One. Here’s some old Cuban money. There’s all kinds of stuff in here from all kinds of counrties. We sell these notes for a dollar apiece. And you can come in and pick through here, pick whatever you like.

Now, on to a little better stuff than that. What you’ve been seeing is all world paper money.

In this case over here, I have hundreds of notes that we buy. And these notes I buy anywhere from a quarter to fifty, sixty, eighty, hundreds of dollars. It depends on the note. I also have back here some paper money in books, that you can look through. And this is all our ‘world’ paper money.

As you can see, there is quite a variety and quite a selection of it. Now, if you’ll just look right up here, in our terrafold, this is all U.S. Small sized paper money and so on. We buy this. It runs anywhere from a dollar and a quarter a note that I would pay, to five, six, seven, eight dollars a note. Here’s a Ten Dollar Silver Certificate, it’s probably worth, I’d pay ten or fifteen bucks for that. This is not expensive stuff. You see lots of it, and lots of people have this kind of material. Here’s what’s called an old Funny Back. So that’s some of the U.S. stuff that we have.

Now let me show you some of the old United States paper money from here, that we buy. Follow me over here. You’ll see in this case here, I have anything from Civil War paper money, money that’s what’s called ‘obsolete currency’. Old Large sized paper money, down in here. Right there. That’s U.S. This is all paper money that is worth anywhere from five dollars a note, to hundreds of dollars a note. And I pay accordingly. If you’ll notice that right here, this piece of money right here, that is Continental Currency from 1776, used by people like George Washington.

So we have quite a selection, and we do buy all of this material. And the prices range all over the map, from rarity, to condition, and so on.

Okay, now you’ve kind of see a smattering of what it is—paper money, there’s just all kinds of it. We also deal in things, these are British Pounds that we buy for exchange, and sell for exchange. You’re going to take a trip to England, you might want to come and see us. You can get the exchange rate here cheaper than you can in England. There’s Euros. Swiss Francs. So, you can see that we do anything from old rare paper money, to exchangeable money.

We also have certified paper money. This is world. This is expensive stuff. This note right here, I think this is highlighted in our website, I’m not sure, but this is about a five thousand dollar note. So we’ll buy from the bottom, three-for-a-dollar junk for pennies, or we’ll pay really, really good money for really really good old paper money. This is just a cool note. And—just because everybody likes to see him—when is the last time you saw a five hundred dollar bill?

So come see us at A Village Stamp & Coin. If you have paper money, we’d be glad to help you out with the value of it, or purchase if from you. Thank you for coming by!
