The Malayan $5 Japanese Occupation Banknote printed with serial number.
Nevertheless, these notes have their historical values and stories. I remember a story told by an old folk many years ago. During the end of the World War II in 1945, the Japanese notes were no long valid as they had surrender themselves to the Allies force after the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Many of the folks in rural area were not aware of this incident. They were cheated by traders from town whom used these Japanese notes (already invalid after the war) to purchase their agriculture products such as padi, corns etc. In return, they had received tonne of Japanese money which later turn up to be worthless and useless. That is why these invasion notes can recall many old folks' painful memory during the war time.
