    This has had a rough life but it will always be worth $2.

    Learning a lot in a short time here. I know I risk rath & ridicule...but in the case of this specific note wich is only good for display...any thoughts on cleaning?

    I can't delete the post- so My thought was to flatten out 2 coffee filters, place the bill between them & lock them in an embroidery hoop. Then set the hoop in my ultrasonic parts cleaner with some undetermined cleaning solution. Would have been very gentle..

    Don’t mess with its patina. The years of soiling go well with all the folds and handling marks. Looks evenly worn.

    If you try to clean it you will only ruin it.
    It will be unnaturally whiter, or in this case, it will rip, etc.
