Is there any value in Japanese or Philippine post war paper money?

Does anyone collect these items ?

some can be valuable, unfortunately none that I ever find, that I can tell. Defuc and Seinen have dabbled in currency, they should be along in a bit to comment. Trey

Both Rampage19 and I also collect and trade it back and forth. There is a bit that has some value but for the most part not a value in it. What do you have?

some of the uncommon notes can run quite high,scarce issue puppet notes etc, A quick picture of which notes you have is the best way to find out.

post made me dig out some of my collection,been a while since I added anything.still really need the 100 and 1000 roepiah notes from pemerintah dai nippon (those suckers are hard to find) and the 1944ish nederlands east indies along with a 1944ish burma,the Ba-Maw era 10 kyat peacock .all of them are available periodically but I cant justify the $25-75 for the roepiah let alone the $500-? for the other couple. I like the phillipine guerilla stuff too.its cool,lots of variation and cheap ..If one of you guys has a spare 20 cent japanese issue occupied malaysia coin you want to give me,ILL take it,with many thanks.

Thanks for the feedback. One of my Uncles was with the 41st Div in the pacific and passed down his scrap book from the war and Japanese occupation. I checked on e-bay and found many similar items of Japanese government money issued in the Philippines, some basic Japanese notes, no yellow dragons or anything fancy. Most is listed at about $ 4 or less.

Some nice original brownie black and white photos of the destruction in Hiroshima, December 1945.

There are a couple of good web sites that show Japanese Invasion Money (JIM). The one I like best is http://www.atsnotes.com/catalog/banknotes/topic-jim.html

Another one that you can find values on from time to time is http://www.joelscoins.com/wwii.htm

Hope this is helpful

theres a section on JIM in "WWII remembered,a history in our hands" which is still available from amazon I think, and there was a neat pamplet published on it long ago, which I think is on the net, just search Japanese invasion currency,(JIM)
