    I was sifting through some stuff and came across some old currency from Yugoslavia. It's about 430,000 dinara and probably was worth only a few dollars when it was active. But since the old Yugoslavia is no more, does anyone here know if I can sell them? Your help is appreciated.

    keep them in your bathroom in case you run out of toilet paper? seriously, call your local bank and see if they can give you some advice or tell you where you could possibly exchange them. me, i'd keep them in my bathroom if for nothing more than interesting conversation with guest.

    Try a coin collector shop, but yeah, they are pretty worthless

    your best bet would be trying to sell it, maybe to a coin shop or ebay or something. I wouldnt even bother with a bank. Especialy if the currency is dead. I used to work as a teller for one of the largest banks in the country, and most banks dont even do currency exchange anymore. What we did was give people a brochure for American Express currency services. After sending the currency registered mail, and after fees, you would only get back about half of what it was worth.

    Starbucks takes them. Just add $3.50 to your 430K, and get a coffee.[​IMG]

    No joke. Small cars are funny when they go that fast. A good friend who works for local police just about wet herself when reading an officer's report of a high speed persuit of a Festiva with speeds in excess of 100mph!!! Maybe you can't polish a turd, but they'll fly with enough grease. [​IMG]

    Well, how many horsepower does it take to move a 75 pound car at 100 plus MPH. [​IMG]
