The Engraveyard

Without the miracle of "the internet" I might never have heard of US military payment certificates. Or other tiny pictures made with wavy lines (and I had to Google Abel Gance to get the reference).

I had no intention of collecting foreign money; I confined myself to a few US bills and some military money. But when an entire collection came up for sale at a downtown coin shop, I couldn’t resist. Some of these bills are beautiful; others are just - plain - odd, and others both.

This is my favourite. No wait, this one.
