So, I was wondering about how do you know when a piece of currency such as a coin or paper bill is worth more than its face value? In addition, why does a regular $100 bill from previous year is not worth more than it is when it comes to money transaction, it is because for example, $250,000 USD from the 50's is worth more in today's dollars? Is it because it is not practical to convert money to their current value?

Money is worth its face value unless it is made of a precious metal or has additional value as a collector's item.

See the post titled Melting money to make money, these threads may be merging !
And did I mention that Americans are so much better looking than everybody else !
Oh my I'm sorry my very cheap humor just can't stay under control !
By the way in these times, all metals already mined and refined are precious.
Are you recycling ?
