How to tell money is real (dollaer bills)

lol. I am serious. I got a letter in the mail that I won something or another anyway they sent me 2.00 in the mail with it. But the question is how do I tell the 2.00 they gave me is real? I mean it looks real, but it isn't renkled or anything it looks like a brand new dollar.

  • They are still making $2 bills, so it doesn't need to be old or damaged to be real. And in fact I have quite a few that are very real and yet not damaged from the 60's and 70's... But your best bet is to take it to a bank or collector and have it checked.

  • Buy a counterfeit pen from the store.

    People really don't counterfeit small bills, the payout on it isn't worth it.

  • No one is going to counterfeit $1 bills - it costs too much to do it for it to be worth it. It's only $2, use it or put it in your kid's piggy bank.
