Texas 100 Dollars


Recommended Posts

How can you guys tell if it's a fake or not? (Just trying to learn for my own knowledge)

 

 

The dark colour is artificially done on the note, the real ones would have much lighter, flimsier paper. These things are made to look old, thus the dark colours, the parchment look and feel to the paper. Back when they were sold they went for about 25¢ each, but now they seem to sell for about a dollar, but they are usually sold in a packet with other replica notes from the same era.

 

A real note would have similar paper and colouring to this:

aye, the odd color, thickness, and smudginess (lack of fine detail) is a dead giveaway. here's a genuine texan for comparison:

(more texas notes here)

 

compared to those, the replicas look like crude photocopies...complete with photocopied tears & holes. here's a few examples of the same exact replica, with obvious attempts to "age" the note:
