As they are not crisp unused notes, they are worth $76.00.
in fact, all are still in circulation, albeit, not too many left of the 1 & 5s.

You might get a very slight premium for the 1,5 & 20 notes, but I doubt you would get any more than 50% more than their face value. The 50 is only worth $50. I have several in my pocket at the moment.

You'd be better off keeping hold of them and passing them down the family line.

Or you could spend them on Chicken Rice and a few beers?

Adelphi has some shops trading in Used notes, but then again, SMS is right.

An American friend dropped by with notes around as older than yours, and the shop guy offered a small premium ..

His notes were sort of out of circulation recently ..

The negotiation reminded me of the show "Pawn Stars" ...
