Ukrainian border guards and customs officers have prevented the export to Poland of a collection of old banknotes and postage stamps.

That's according to the State Border Guard Service, Ukrinform reports.

"A 37-year-old German citizen was traveling to a neighboring country by train. During the inspection, the inspectors found 13 bills issued in 1908-1933, 4 banknotes dated 1923, and 30 postage stamps," the report said.

According to Ukrainian border guards, the foreigner hid the banknotes and stamps among his personal belongings.
