Figured I'd share some old currency I have had passed down to me....

This first bill was actually produced in the field and was legal tender. I guess it was hard to get actually currency to front line troops so it was "field printed" and if signed by the proper person it was legal tender.
The 2 dollar bill is interesting...I actually don't remember how I came about it but it has a stamp from 1976 on is near mint

The rest were bills my grandfather and great grandfather collected during the World Wars... I still have a compass...a Japanese 6.5 rifle and a lucky rabbits foot that he carried with him (although it is not hairless and ugly looking)

Thanks for looking!

Hi, The note pictured in the photos that are labeled "War Print Front" and "War Print Back" may be quite a valuable note. I had a similar note that sold for $135 on eBay.
