My husband once found 600 deutschmarks tucked into an old book he'd bought for 50 cents at the recycling center in Munich. We had to go to the central Bavarian bank headquarters to exchange it, and brought along all the coins that had turned up since the change to the euro. We were very surprised to find people ahead of us in line, doing exactly the same thing.
Ok, for 600 DMs I'd go get them exchanged, too! But I'm still holding on to my 20 DM bill
