  • local currency converter?

    probably not the best place to ask this but -

    i sold a guy in switzerland something off of ebay. i think the guy has ADD the way he sends e-mail. anyway, he ended up sending me cash in the mail (with no tracking number) for the auction! about $340 worth of swiss francs. where can i go convert these, and get a decent rate?

    any US bank of size should convert these for you. if you go to an airport you will do worse.

    btw, a handy online currency converter is www.xe.com

      thanks, i vaguely recall depositing a canadian money order at my bank at some time, although that seemed quite a bit different than swiss cash.

      my understanding is that swiss banks will still accept and give out silver bars over the counter? and francs were tied to gold all the way up to amending their constitution in 2000!
