But after coming back from Circle K to buy a fountain drink this one really stood out. I pulled my change from my pocket to put in my wallet. Other than a fold crease it feels crisp and brand new which is by far the least weirdest thing happening with it. What in God's name is going on here?

    Likely a fake if it comes apart like that. Why would someone fake a one dollar bill though? Not worth the time or money.

    Looks fake to me!! Another word for it of course is counterfeit!!!!!! I think I'd take it back to the Circle K and call the police. Maybe call the police first!! Don't think Circle K is to blame, but they may have more of them!!!

    Measure the thickness and compare it to know $1 bill. I supposed there could have been two sheets stuck together as it went through the printing process (stranger things have happened). I don't see any threads on this bill so it is probably counterfeit.

    The thickness is maybe a fraction thicker than any other $1 note. Not enough for 2 sheets anyway. My first thought was it's counterfeit too even though it's a $1 note which seems strange to counterfeit. The paper is a high quality fiber paper, possibly even linen. I shown my black light flashlight on it and didn't see any luminous threads but I'm not sure if that's even a thing in $1 notes?.. I may take it back to the store and have them mark it with one of their pens just out of curiosity lol.

    Well if there is a chance it’s an error, it would decrease the value if you mark it.

    Well I did some research on the counterfeit pens and they use an iodine solution that reacts with the starch in wood based paper. So being a higher quality fiber paper I'm not sure it would work even if it is counterfeit. So now I'm stumped. To bad $1 notes don't have micro printing or other security features I can look for...

    This could happen if the paper has a high static electricity charge in it. If the printing machine doesn't have a static discharge strip, to bleed off the static, then it can pull two sheets at a time, if other parts of the equipment are also not working properly. Have someone who has more knowledge of this problem check it. I once had such a person I could go to at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing to ask such questions.

    US notes can easily be split like that. Crooks used to split ones and twenty's and then glue them together, trying to pass the twenty side up so the clerk gave them change for a $20.
    Tendious and very time consuming, but back in the day, it was worth it, I guess.
    Here is a $100 split.
