It's hard to imagine quite how this came about, but a man in China has tried to buy a train ticket costing $2 with a 500-yuan banknote that's been out of circulation since 1949. Unless the man is a collector it's a bit of a mystery as to why he had the 1943 banknote with him and if he were a collector he would have known that similar notes are worth more than $100 online!
