Many of our citizens are still in the bins bills left over from Soviet times. For many, it's just memory, some bookmarks, but for some it is a treasure, which they cherish as the apple of the eye. Why is it treasure? All because in the opinion of our citizens, these paper money of the ussr are nehily money. Where did this myth? Probably of the opinion that such "historical" papers few who remained, and collectors to drool such rare instances. In fact, it is not, moreover, is not so.
The average price of the banknote with the date of issue 1961 – about 50 rubles for a small denomination and 300 rubles for large denominations. But this price only applies to those instances have not been in circulation, ie them immediately at the time seized and kept in appropriate conditions. In 99% of people do not have similar bills. As a rule they are the owners in the best case of banknotes, the state of which can be defined as "good". But such notes of the ussr is no collector will never be interested. In general, any collector of banknotes – Bonisteel, in their own bins kept tens and hundreds of similar paper .
Even I – the average Bonisteel hand the number of such bills exceeded one hundred. How should I take them? It's simple – if you buy the Collector's material many vendors give such specimens as a bonus. Or do I just substitute bill in the collection new purchased, if their quality is even better. To compare prices, I can say that a pack of rubles ussr in 1961 issue of the banking package (100 pieces) now costs about 3000 rubles. Safety, of course, appropriate. Now Imagine how many times in different forums collectors get messages about the sale of Rare banknotes of the ussr "by" cheap "price of a couple thousand. Such sellers are offended when they say that their papers did not stand. Silently holding his anger they lay "the memory of the USSR" away and wait for when these "curiosities" to rise. As they say, let them wait for three hundred years. Then the grandchildren will say thank you.
