It is interesting to see how dumb people are.
They didn't charge him with counterfeiting though. Just using them; but he wasn't using them. He was just using them in his underwear. Maybe it was for extra insulation?
It would be interesting to hear his defense in court and where he got those notes from. I would love to see the notes, to see how good they were.
I can see why counterfeiting the $5 and not the $10 or $20, since it takes better equipment with the new coloring to counterfeit anything larger than a $5 note now, so the new notes are working at preventing counterfeiting.
I still see the old $5 notes circulating well though and not any $10 or $20.
I wish they would give the $1 note a face lift though. I bet they will be counterfeited in the near future, if they don't make the same changes to them.
I've been collecting, since 1975.
