Could you please help me identify what I found?

I don't know much about numismatics so I'm sorry if this is a wrong place to ask this question. I found these today. I think my grandfather got them in the US back in the 70's, what are these exactly? I only managed to find out that Michigan National Corporation Bank no longer exists, so if they are bonds or something they probably are not worth much anymore, right? Pic http://bit.ly/2oMoLVJ

$50 bill from 2013 with the letters “CSY” on the right side of the front of the bill; is it worth anything? via /r/numismatics


$50 bill from 2013 with the letters “CSY” on the right side of the front of the bill; is it worth anything?

I don't mean to sound like some ignorant asshole, so please forgive me if I do, but–as mentioned in the title–I have a $50 bill from 2013 with the letters "CSY" on the right side of the front of the bill and I'm wondering if that makes the bill worth anything other than its face value. Aforementioned letters are oriented in such a way that you have to turn the bill 90° counterclockwise to see the letters right side up.

I searched Google for at least ten minutes to see if I could find anything one way or the other and all I could discover (after rewording the inquiry numerous times) is that it doesn't seem to be a normal feature of $50s. I couldn't find a single image with "CSY" on the bill.

I checked to see if the bill was legit, and it seems to pass the usual checks (it has the appropriate watermarks and security strip and whatnot).

So… yeah. Is it worth anything? And if not, can someone at least tell me what the "CSY" stands for and why it's on the bill at all and apparently not on other $50s?

Please and thank you for any help anyone may be able to provide.

Found a 1945s War-time nickel via /r/numismatics


Found a 1945s War-time nickel

First time I have seen one in change in maybe 3 decades. Have to wonder if it somehow has been in circulation all these years. Found within the past year something that surprised me, I know I had not seen a buffalo in 30 years or longer but there it was, in very worn condition as was the 1945. Always interested in hearing other people's finds!

I am concerned they might be fakes — the one I saw was printed on one side which I think is legit but seems so easy to fake. To think that such bills have become valuable — I think in the 1960s you could but them for almost nothing.
