The Secret Service has two responsibilities. The most
well known one is guarding all of the past and current
Presidents of the United States.. Even Jimmy Carter
still has a small detail of the Secret Service assigned
to him.. You never can be to careful.. In the late seventies
militia's organized against the the Carter proposed
shift to metric system..
The Secret Service's other duty is to protect US currency
from counterfeit money.. Print shops used to be frequently
monitored to see whether or not illegal money was being
The University of Iowa Printmaking Program is #1 in
the nation and last year if the Secret Service snooped
around, they would have discovered a group of printmakers
who invented a new denomination of US currency; the
$25 dollar bill.. Although they never got around to
making a back side for the bills, nor ever tried to
circulate them, they did give them out as door prizes
at one of their parties..
They gave me one green one an three photocopied bills..
I wouldn' try and spend these if I were you. One because
you would look like an idiot for trying to spend a photocopied
$25 bill and two b/c the statutes for trying to pass
fake money will put you away for 10 years to life..
You might be able to spend these at the upcoming print
sale at the UI print shop..
