Questions about selling alot of older notes

5 posts in this topic

First and foremost thank you for your help in my previous thread.

 

I inherited a fair amount of older notes from my grandfather and decided i want to part ways with some of them. These arnt as sentimental as the jewelery he left me or the lionel trains which i won't ever get rid of. So I am thinking about ebaying some of these.

 

If you could help me answer these questions it would be apreciated.

 

1. Is it worth it to bundle any of these notes (ie all the New york ones and the one boston one) or should i list them separately. either way i will pay 13% to ebay so i figure its better to spilt them up because why would someone want 5 new york notes? unless maybe i am wrong

 

2. The oddest thing i found was mint 1996 20s and 100s. This was the first year of the big head money. I take it its not worth selling these as they are only worth face value? Ie the cash value is better invested in the russell 2000 or some index fund where i might average 3-12% a year.

 

3. Is there a better place to sell these than ebay? I like ebays completed / sold listings so i can see past values of them. But is there like a forum or popular area to sell them where i might only have to pay the paypal 3% instead of the ebay 13%? Im in North NJ so i dont know about any local meetups.

 

4. Any aproximation of value or historical significance on these notes would be apreciated. I am looking at ebay completed listings and google to try and figure out what certain bills are

 

A - 1 boston 10$ and 5 NY ones

Most of the notes are pretty common and might be worth a bit over face, the FRBNs are always popular as are the silver certificates. The one note with a bit more value is the Hawaii silver cert, but it's certainly not very high grade.

 

The star notes are simply replacement notes, when a note is damaged in production, the BEP issues a new note with a star in the serial number to denote that.

 

The new big head notes might get a bit over face, but given the fees involved it probably wouldn't be worth it.

 

As an alternative to eBay, you might consider posting something in the marketplace forum here, as there might be some interest and at least you'd avoid the outrageous ebay fees! Good luck whatever you decide!

These are all pretty common and for the most part not worth much more over face. Ebay would probably not be worthwhile.

 

Why not bundle them ALL together and offer on the money marketplace on this board and others? Beats wasting time with individually selling them, packaging them, and going to the post office.

 

You might also see what a dealer in such items may be willing to pay you. If you need a list of some dealers in these items, PM me. I do not endorse any of them, but can make you aware of the ones that have been around for awhile and seem to have a reasonably good reputation.

 

Best of luck.

hey thanks for the response.

 

where is the link to the money marketplace? it takes me forever just to find this thread here.

 

also are people cool with paying via paypal and using their fraud protection (i sell a ton on ebay) but some forums people expect users without a fair amount of transactions there to ship first which is insanely silly.

 

and sure if you dont mind pming me that dealer list that would be great i figured out how to check my PMs here.

 

 

also what about 50 uncirculated silver certs from the 1950s . forgot about those. they have that band around them.
