Coin and Paper Money Collecting/US Currency

Question
Hello Sir
I live in Kitchener, ON, Canada. In 2009 I had ordered some US currency from "World Reserve Monetary Exchange. Details are:
Leather bound Ledger 1 with 2 notes in each sheet
$1 x 1 2003 Washington
$2 x 1 2003 Jefferson
$5 x 1 2006 Lincoln
$10x 1 2006 Hamilton
$20x 1 2006 Jackson
$50x 1 2006 Grant

Leather bound Ledger 2 with 2 notes in each sheet
$1 x 1 2003 Washington
$2 x 1 2003 Jefferson
$5 x 1 2006 Lincoln
$10x 1 2006 Hamilton
$20x 1 2006 Jackson

These have the papers/certificates that came with them. My questions are:
1 What would be their as-is value;
2 Where can I sell them, after market, Ebay,etc
3 Would it sell better as-is or separately.

Thanks for taking the time,
With regards

Answer
What you have there really isn't old enough to be considered collectible money.  That is just something that was thrown together by a third party and sold to people in foreign countries who don't have access to United States money.  In reality there will be some collector value there just because of the presentation.  However, don't expect to get much more than a small percentage over face value.  I would just list it on ebay and hope that another buyer likes it just as much as you did.

Expertise

I can answer any question relating to valuing US Currency. My specialty is national currency, large-size currency, and small size issues between 1928 and 1957. Many bank notes have variables that can make two seemingly identical notes have very different values. That is why it is so important to work with an expert. I also work with rare Canadian banknotes as well as some foreign currency (mostly British Commonwealth countries). I have participated either as a buyer or seller in more than 500 different coin auctions.

Experience

I have been a full time currency dealer since 2006. I set up at about ten national coin and currency shows per year all across the country. My company has a retail location in Greenville, SC. I also run a website about old money values. I am also currently the director of currency auctions at Stacks Bowers. So I am in a unique position to see, value, and sell millions of dollars worth of paper money on a annual basis. I have been lucky enough to sell hundreds of individual banknotes worth over $10,000. I personally hold several world records for highest price paid for certain categories of banknotes. While I personally don't deal a tremendous amount of coins, I can provide sound advice on where to sell coins in NYC, and other major metro areas across the country. I have seen the worst of the worst and the best of the best when it comes to coin dealers. If you don't want to publicly ask a question then you can always view our coin value guide at Coins.com.
