Dad's Collection - Pt. 1

Coins - World | AndreBizzle

Hey Guys,
I've been pressed for time the past few weeks because of work, but I did get an opportunity this past weekend to take a look through one of my Dad's binders. This one looks it's filled with coins and currency from the globe. I think it may be the only international stuff in my father's collection.
My dad labeled the majority of what's in this binder so it's been a good place to start because it provides a bit of guidance. My dad's not even here anymore and he's still giving me pointers!
I haven't had much of an opportunity to look into each piece individually, but I thought I'd share some pictures of what I've come across so far.I only took photos of the obverse sides, but if there's anything you'd like to take a closer look at let me know and I'll get some better pictures.

Dad being so organized will certainly make your job a bit easier. Did you obtain your Red Book yet. Remember Red Book prices are basically retail so if you sell to a dealer or a private party, do not expect to get as much. The Red Book is already outdated when released so just use it as a general reference for value.

Very nice. I wish I labeled things so well. I like the peso JIM notes. Japanese Invasion Money. Thanks.

That's a lot of coins and notes! Try looking up the older coins- I looked through some coins that my grandma collected, and I found a $3,500 coin!

That is a very nice collection I like the variety of world coins and some U.S. coins. Your dad must have been a great numismatist! Thanks for sharing!

Nice wide variety grouping of coinage. What collecting is and should be about. As for your late father, which has been in the back of my mind since the last blog, I know I've bumped into him somewhere in the past. Just not sure where yet. I'm very good with faces so it will come to me.
