As we all know, everyone has used paper currency for its intended purpose. We’ve all purchased goods and services with cash at some point in our lives. But did you ever consider collecting it? Compared to coin collecting, fewer people have taken an interest in collecting paper currency until very recently. “Notaphily,” which is the collection and study of paper money has become more popular in recent years. This is due mainly to the widespread availability of information on the subject which can be found easily on the internet and in print.

Helping the enthusiasm to spread are paper currency collector societies and clubs. And most recently, the utilization of third-party grading services to certify the collectible paper currencies has also aided in the excitement and interest of collecting.
