Four rare bank notes once deemed worthless are set to sell for a staggering £3.5 million after they were discovered in a drawer. The notes, totalling 3,500 US dollars, are so rare that experts feared them lost forever - and have hailed their discovery as a "trophy find". They date back to the 1880s and have miraculously survived the last 130 years in tact after being kept in a drawer at the home of a US banker. The currency - three 1,000 dollar notes and one 500 dollar note - are now tipped to sell for 1,700 times their face value.
