It is by no means a complete collection, and the old notes themselves are not in mint condition. Most are worn, and some have burn marks (he was a smoker, after all!).
|This 1935 note is the oldest in the collection. Portrait is that of George V, who died the following year.|
Curious as to its current value, I searched for it in eBay.
Quite a variation in value, depending on the quality, I would imagine.
That is probably because he ruled till his death in 1952 and currency with his portrait would have been around in my early childhood.
The previous regent (on the $1 above), King George V, I cannot remember ever seeing at all on currency or stamps.
There are a few more (will post some time in the future) from the Japanese occupation and the early 60's.
On another note (pun intended), here's a little newspaper article I found a week or two ago regarding the yucca. If correct, I can look forward to the yucca flowering next year.
