I was going through old boxes in my basement, and came across some with my Fathers WWII stuff. He dropped out of high school to join up at age 16 and made to the Battle of Leyte Gulf. He got this currency while there and was wondering if it's occupation money.

I have a bundle of one's, five's, ten's, and twenties....wonder if my bank will swap them out for me..... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Called Mickey Mouse money. I dont see a rare one there. I use to have a few myself I bought on ebay for a few bucks. Some rare ones have some values, so you may want to study to see what you have . If you have bundles, they're worth about 5 cents -$200 depending, so you may be rich...

Type it in ebay and see what you find.
