I take a quote from an article I read the other day…
Money defacing is perhaps the most economical style of risky individual expression – and is as equally unlawful as graffiti.
To this day I’m not 100% sure why defacing money is illegal. OK from what I understand and have read, it’s illegal to deface money (or checks) for the purpose of having a benefit or gain. Which means that you might alter a 5 dollar bill to make it a 10. But what if you just want to make the money look silly and never plan on using it?
How is that illegal? Eh, whatever. I just know that with a little creativity, defacing can be pretty funny. Just check out these examples
Thanks to Money Mumbo Jumbo for these
