    I got a big jar of foreign coins and bills from my grandfather before he died years ago. I recently found it and am thinking of seeing if any of them are worth anything. Most of the ones I've found on ebay and other sites are worth between $5 and $20 but some of them have arabic writing.

    I'm thinking of finding similar coins and seeing what they're charging for them and sell the whole lot for a price but I don't want to get ripped off. I'd be pissed if some guy lied to me and made a fortune off one of my coins.

    I got one from Germany from 1939 with a swastika on it. But they seem to be pretty common.

    Scott I'm sure there's a market for what you have. Check out Numismaster and go to a coin fair/show before you start selling.

    I used to travel overseas a lot so I would collect bills from different countries. Turns out there's also $ in dead bugs; entomology nerds would pay $50 for a dead harlequin beetle :facepalm:

    I'm finding most of them sell for between $5 and $20 on Ebay. I may just go into a coin shop and sell the whole jar at $5 per coin and take the lump sum. I will get screwed but I don't have the patience to sell them individually.
