I have a bag full of hundreds of foreign (to me) coins from all over the world, as well as some paper money. It generally dates from the 1940s to the 1970s, and includes some pesos and rupee bills that were issued by the Japanese government when Japan occupied the Philippines and Burma during WWII.

Any stock market for this? I've seen a few photos on some of sites. Any ideas? I was thinking of a collage of coins and a passport on top of a world map, and maybe just overhead shots of the coins scattered on top of each other. Not sure if there'd be much demand for shots of the single coins since they're all so old and out of circulation by now.

What do you think? Too obscure?

Thanks.

Concept shots like the one you mentioned with the map or passport sound the most likely to be sellers.

Isolated shots are probably not too usefull.  You could consider uploading them to Alamy as RM so you make a decent return if someone does end up buying them.

Thanks. Humor me--why RM on Alamy?

I'd want to maximize my return, because the shots aren't likely to be downloaded much due to their obscure content? (I'm new and slow...thanks.)
