Being that I play a lot of poker I always have cash on me. And something I’ve noticed in the last year or so are the mysterious markings I keep seeing on hundred dollar bills. Now I know it seems to be trendy to hate on the Federal Reserve and blast the U.S. Treasury for how they bail out people, and being a poker player I don’t have any love for either of them at the moment, but that doesn’t mean I would fuck with their money.
Of the 16 examples I have; 13 have markings on the front of the hundred dollar bill while 3 are on the back. What kind of sub culture is doing this? Is this the work of a Banksy type character? Is it some kind of elaborate form of communicating? Or is this what art school dropouts do to leave a mark?
I’ve grouped the markings into four categories so far: Symbols, Animals, Letters/Initials and Random.
