Thread: How do people post banknotes?

  1. #1

    Default How do people post banknotes?

    Hope I'm not interrupting, seems to be a lot of tumbleweed rolling through here, but hopefully that means happy coin dealers!

    I'm not a collector, but during my decluttering I've found various old banknotes from the 1980s. E.g. $20 Australian dollars and $5 Canadian. They're not mint, but I guess if a collector is on a budget they might want them. I might try ironing them, or is that a terrible thing to do?

    Also I'm worried about evil buyers claiming they've not arrived and using Paypal to get a refund. In my ideal world I'd get UK banknotes in return, but I guess that's rather naive.

    If they are collectable, I post them in stiffened envelopes but what you have sounds like fodder for left over currency dot com. An old Aussie $5 fetches 1.92 at the moment (a current one is 2.53, for comparison purposes)... No need to iron them

    Surprisingly, looking on the other side, old ones seem to go for around double face value. Of course I'd research past sales here if I could.

    Stiffened envelopes, but what, registered post? Have you had any "it didn't [cough] arrive" issues? (Must of been the dog wot ate it, guv)

    Thanks for letting me off ironing. Wasn't looking forward to that in the present weather!

    on here I just send them - have had no issues - on the dark side everything goes signed for.

    Yay! \o/ \o/ \o/

    Seriously though, should I do that, or is it like polishing antique silver with wire wool?

    Also I could risk snide comments from SWMBO such as "Ahah, so you DO know how to use an iron!".
