Even worse is when they call the police to arrest the person who passed the "counterfeit".

That's happened many times, too.

Denature alcohol should be able to remove the marker with ease, but not sure about how much further damage it would do to the bill.

I took $30 in $2 bills to the casino last night and the cashier counted them and ran one of those counterfeit pens over them which I thought was weird. (I broke even, so, I'm not counting them in the $2 spending thread)

Common note in this grade even without the defacing, certainly not worth restoring. If the person who did it had simply never seen a brown seal in circulation, how could they have spent it afterward? Great puzzle.

Walk into any major retailer and try paying for your purchase with series 1928 / 1934 Federal Reserve notes, blue seal silver certificates or red seal Untied States notes and watch the cashiers freak out and start calling for the head cashier.



Hey westernsky I managed to spend 20 silver certificates once. The cashier took them and counted them and put them in the register.
