Fake banknotes on Ebay
« on: March 20, 2017, 10:59:23 AM »
Check out this offer for fake banknotes.  Lots of material out there.  I think the watermark is actually inked, not certain.

It's a scary world.

All the specimens are fake, just a specimen stamp on non specimen banknotes

I've noticed fake specimens now and then.  As I understand it, specimen banknotes should NEVER have regular serial numbers.
