    My friend's grandfather and great uncle brought back this $$ from Europe after the war. They all date from 1942 - 1945, except for the Hundert Millionen Mark, which is from 1923.

    Can anyone help me - any information and or comments are welcome.

    Belgian, German, British, French, Luxembourg ,Bohemia & Moravia (Nazi protectorate of Czechoslovakia)

    The UK 10 Shillings is the most valuable.
    I'll check my books and get you some values.

    These are catalogue values so use only as a guide, I usually value items at 50%-75% less than cat value.

    The British 10 shilling note is around $20
    The Luxembourg (Letzburg) 20 Francs is around $5.
    All the others are common circulated notes so valued at around $2 each.

    Inflationary money always weirds me out a bit. Vichy money just makes me sad.

    The 1920's German hyper-inflation money was over printed each day as inflation ran away.
    The Zimbabwe 100 Trillion Dollar trumps them all.

    I took my kids to Turkey around 25 years ago and inflation was running at 12,000 Lira per day.
    My kids were asking for a couple of million each spending money per day, LOL.
    Great holiday, great cuisine, happy days.
