Don't all get too excited!! :D

I found among my father in laws stuff a (just) post war Belgium banknote.
It was put in a pile of papers to burn and I spotted it at the last moment.
Anyone collect such things?

edit: dated 04.11.44

Just looked on e bay
apparently they go up to £240: that's for one described as EF which I guess means extra fine.

I would describe mine as EG (extra grotty).
My offer stands however.

Nothing at all to do with your banknote (nice offer by the way) but it reminded me of a similar occasion in our family

When the family home was up for sale in the 1970s and stuff accumulated for donkeys years was being cleared out, many a bonfire was had

At one such bonfire a load of old paper and bits of material were chucked on, a small scrunched up piece of cloth rolled off, my sister picked it up and just opened it out, to find a sampler stitched by our great grandmother, finished in 1870 aged ten

It hung in my sisters house for years, sadly she died in 2016, I suspect it was sold off with the contents of her home :-(
