New business model.... exchange bills for coins and coins for coins, looking for valuable ones, resell, repeat.
It would be funny if it were not a huge business already.
People do pay many times over nominal value for rear coins and bills, not necessarily particularly old ones. For instance, a $2 bill, depending on the year of issue and condition may be sold for $10 to several hundred bucks...
At the same time, not everybody is aware of this (to say the least), and on top of it people do not normally inspect their change for anything other then a nominal value.
I use 2 dollar bills all the time as legal tender; you can request them at any bank. I wouldn't call that rare. Or rear.
Of course it's a different story with uncut sheets or special prints/serial numbers, but then that's true for any denomination of bill.
i keep a $2 bill in my wallet at all times-
because it's Jefferson.
and he doesn't take any shit.

This makes the special tender easier to get, but also keeps its price down...
Recently made even more illegal.

Just automate it.... Wait a sec: perhaps that's the secret business model for those coin counting machines in the supermarkets!

Thats why you think he's very nice! :)
Try to look for silver quarters. You can tell because they dont have the copper edge on them and make a very distinct 'clink' when hit against other quarters. I heard they range from .50 to 1.00. We get a few a month at the pharmacy.
Also be on the lookout for Susan B Anthony silver dollars almost always passed off as quarters. Get a ton of those at the pharmacy as well.

What is that language? Albanian?
I had one of those years ago. I gave it away to someone who enjoyed coin collecting more than I do shortly thereafter, but every few years I'll run acros old coins like that. I like it when that happens. Kinda' made me want to get into coin collecting, but I don't have the time, and I don't know anything about it.
