    Once while on a visit in Denver, CO. I decided to tour the U.S. Mint, Denver Branch. When entering, I ask the guard if they were giving out samples today, He reached down behind the counter and then handed me this bag of shredded money. The bag states, "There is approximately $165 of unfit currency in this bag."
    It looks like it would be to tedious of a job to paste them all back together, so I just keep the bag intact.
    That's what I get for asking for samples!!!!
    Thanks for looking,
    Dave

      Dave,
      That's pretty cool! Never seen shredded currency before. I guess you could actually say that you have plenty of money to burn:)

      Interesting that the mint is giving away shredded currency since they don't print paper money.

      Militarist, It could be because they had a display of shredded currency art. I posted a couple of the art pieces above.
