I've heard some strange stories about Turkish banknotes.  The Turkish government has a penchant for protecting objects that it considers "cultural patrimony."  The restrictions are odd.  The penalties are severe.  Selective enforcement and facts on the ground make for a rather murky situation.  Supposedly some, but not all of the banknotes are export-prohibited.  The market for better banknotes is rather strong.
