    Hi all,
    My wife and I were walking back to my mother's place from church when I spotted a Dollar Bill in front of a Deli. I said to her "Look babe a dollar!" She quickly picked it up but had the craziest look of confusion. She handed it over to me and said "It looks weird.. What's wrong with it?"

    Honestly I don't know why it looks the way it does nor why someone would create such an ugly thing :yack:

    Take a look for yourself...

    Actually you should have said "Look Babe two dollars. lol Those bills have had a hard life but more than 50% of each bill is present. Next time you're at the bank...

    I guess you can call that "a man-made error bill".

    I bet some guy down on his luck end up with 2 dollar that have been ripped! Not knowing he could have ended up with two dollar spendable if he took them to the bankbut decided to tape them together and try pass it off multiple time just to find out no one will take it.... so he Himself threw it away.....
