Has certificate of authenticity. Looks to uncirculated.  Paid 9.99 for it. Good deal or not?

The copper penny is worth .03 cents the steel has been "resurfaced" so it's pmd the silver 5c is worth .95 cents the 1941 is a spender I'm not sure of the bill as a collection I would say if you like it 👍 as for the value of the coins I would say it's too high

I had never seen the set. Figured I would hold on to it. It looks to be in fairly well shape. Plus historical value to me is worth it.

I won't open the can of worms cents made out of shell casings but I would buy that propaganda poster of U.S troops policing their brass dodging bullets shouting a penny saved Is a penny earned and Uncle Sam giving the big 👍 up maybe I'm waiting for a poster that dosent exist

The coins are worth maybe a dollar, retail.  The note maybe a couple of dollars.  And the note was used in the Philippines.

The narrative is wrong - as far as I can tell, these notes were issued in Malaysia, Borneo, Brunei, and a couple other places. They were not intended for a US invasion. The M on the notes indicates Malaya. The notion that it needs a "certificate of authenticity" is a bit hokey. But if you like it, great. I've certainly blown $10 on worse.

If it is a fake, they do have a return policy. I always check that now. To make sure I can get my money back.

Kbbpll is right, I erred, the note was for Malaya not the Philippines.
