watch your hindquarters

A counterfeit quarter was found in a high school vending machine, prompting an investigation by the US Secret Service to begin an investigation as to its origin. State Trooper Thomas Moysey declared, “it was so good I could hand it to you and you would never know (the difference).” Two weeks before finding the quarter, a fake $1 was found in a vending machine at the same school.

It’s a strange occurrence because coins are rarely counterfeited due to their low value. The most common denomination to counterfeit is the $20 bill. It’s low enough to be plentiful, but worth enough money to be lucrative for counterfeiters.

Now would be a good time to brush up on how to detect a counterfeit bill. It could save you twenty bucks.
