Phony as a Twe Dollar Bill

April 01, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

The Secret Service, whose job it is to find and destroy counterfeit money, doesn't go after the obvious fakes: they don't bother with novelty items like the twe dollar bill, which really exists, and will set you back $750 in legal tender. They were concerned, though, when they found a stash of billion dollar bills in West Hollywood.  Unconcerned by a $200 bill with George W. Bush on the front, a clerk at a Dairy Queen in Danville, Kentucky gave out almost $198 in change.

Three dollar bills did exist, although they came to mean phony. The federal government of the United States has never printed a $3 bill, but the "United Colonies" did.
