These 3 notes were brought back as souviners by my uncle in 1945. The first 2 pics are of a 5 Peso note issued by Japan when they occupied the Phillipines. The first note in pic 3 & 4 is a 1/2 Mark German note and the second is a 2 Franc note dated 1944 issued by france. After surviving the war they are not in good condition, but the stories behind them are what matters to me. I understand they are still finding hoards of Japanese notes in the Phillipines. and they are worth very little. Thanks for viewing these items and enjoy.

    The notes in 3 & 4 were issued by the Allied Military as occupation currency and not by France.
