Howdy,

Funny story, was about to do some reno's and had to climb into the attic for some electrical work and when I opened the attic access something fell out and bounced off my head to the floor...lol.  Looked down and it was an old mastercard envelope with these $20's and $50 in it.  I don't suspect they're worth much more than face value even that's a cool find though  :)  They're all 1979 Lawson Bouey 20's except the 50 is 1975.  S/N's are a mix of 500/501's and 502's.

Cheers and Thanks,
Max

Don't worry. Almost everyone has trouble with the pic attachment system at this site. It's clunky and non-intuitive.

After uploading the pic and clicking "Host it", you need to copy and paste the image's URL into your post.

Face value on the $50, most likely face value on all of the $20s too but we'd have to see the serial numbers to know for sure.

Thanks Seth, that's kinda what I though......oh well it's still over 400 bucks...although I bet it would have bought a lot more back in the early 80's when it was most likely put there....lol
