I bought several 1000 baht bank notes back with me from a trip to Thailand way back in 2008, I was intending to use them on a subsequent trip but forgot about them. I 'found' them the other day when clearing out my safe, the question is, are they still likely to be legal currency?

Yes - if you have any concerns, you may always take them to a Thai bank, and ask them to replace them with current bills.   Lately, when I cash a monthly check for 135,000 baht, I typically receive about 90,000 baht in "old" bills (2008 type), and 45,000 baht in "new "bills.

Cheers,

AFAIK still Legal Tender since 15 Series of Banknote (1,000 Baht November 2005) has not been supersede by Series 16 (August 2015) .

Never get to see current notes, as soon as Mrs Kong goes to ATM they are spent   ...    such is life.
