Recommended Posts

There has been alot of talk about making copies of your dinars before you cash them in, please look at the following when considering this option. It look as if you could possible face up to 15 years for this act. If I am interpreting this information out of context, please feel free to correct this post.

KNOW YOUR MONEY

Very interesting info. I know a few who have photographed every bill. Also please change the highlighted color as it is very hard to read.

Thanks.

I believe Okie's original suggestion during a CC is that our copies be made in BLACK only so there would be no conscious intent to copy/counterfeit the Dinar. Also, when you put a post-it note on the face of the banknote, initial it, and then copy it, you are altering the likeness so that it cannot be considered an attempt at counterfeiting. I don't know the legalities. This is just my learned opinion from working in the graphic industry for decades.

I believe that this code pertains to US money as in this sentence taken from the text "Anyone who manufactures a counterfeit U.S. coin in any denomination above five cents is subject to the same penalties as all other counterfeiters."

Not that it would be cool to counterfeit ANY money. Just sayin

I spoke with a good friend who is a bank manager here in NW Florida and she indicated that she would not, nor allow any of her tellers to, sign anything that was photocopied because of these laws. So I'm not sure if banks will sign them if they are copied or not, I guess that's just one more question that will be answered when it's time to cash in.

I just called the US Secret Service Office in Atlanta 404-331-6111, and spoke with a counterfeit agent. They said that as long as the bills are copied in BLACK and WHITE and at a size of greater that 125% or less than 75% than we should be fine.
