Re: Where can I value my notes?

Mac, in the catalogue of note valuations, it says a one pound note from 1984 in UNC is worth 20 euro, and the minimum UNC price is 17 euro. Is the catalogue incorrect?

That is, minimum UNC price for all dates is 17 euro.

Those prices are a bit high. Which catalogue are you using?

Are the catalogues accurate then, and how accurate are they?
When a glut of something turns up, prices fall. When items are thin on the ground prices then to rise.
Discuss :)

I am using "Standard Catalogue Of World Paper Money". Prices in it are in USD.

SCWPM is a good general catalogue for world notes, and the Irish section has been improved a lot over the past few editions. All catalogue valuations are approximate guidelines.

It would be great if I could get 17 Euro for a 1989 £1 note! In practice, as far as I can tell, they sell for less than that currently.

All the US world note dealers use Standard Catalog, cause it covers the whole world in one, er 3 volumes! Used to be one volume. It's ok, but if you're serious about a country, you need a specialized catalog.

One pound notes in UNC are quite popular on eBay, selling out at 20 USD apiece.
