A Study In Modern Chop Marks

Recommended Posts

Here are some that I found, on all 100.00 bills. I have wondered about them and have seen the ones that have a location in the states on them to see how much the bills are circulated in a community. Never thought that it would be a sub collecting area!

 

Will have to pay more attention and take photo's in the future.

I work at a casino and handle tons of American $100 bills every day. I cannot tell you how many bills pass through our hands that have some kind of stamp on them! Sometimes we even receive upwards of ten in a row with the same mark on a similar area on the back of the bill. This conversation had been sating my curiosity!!

Hi! I'm new here, and this is my first post. I hope it's okay to reply to an old thread? I found this thread on reddit.

Anyway, I found a chop mark on my money. 

Where can I learn more about chop marks?

However this Hawaii $5 National is my ultimate favorite. I have had the Kanji character translated as a pawnbroker but that may also have counted as a currency trader of its time. 1929 $5 5550 Ty.2 Japanese Pawnbroker chop (7).jpg1929 $5 5550 Ty.2 Japanese Pawnbroker chop (4).jpg1929 $5 5550 Ty.2 Japanese Pawnbroker chop (3).jpg
