    Default Filipino Occupation Currency

    Hey guys,

    I picked this up the other day in an antique store. I got a whole bag with about 20 bills in it for $10. There's a good mix of Japanese occupation currency and American pre-war currency. I'm not usually one to ask about values, but does anyone know what these things go for?

    Regards,
    Mo

    A lot of this material survived the war. I do not think it has any great value. I found a large roll of these occupation bills rolled up and inside the liner of my first Japanese helmet 50+ years ago. It had remained there hidden since the owner lost his helmet until I aquired it from a veteran years later

    I didn't really think it would be worth that much. I think it's pretty cool and it displays well.

    There was also an I.D. card for a 2nd Lt. in the bag of money when I bought it. I would love to research him.
