I'm a podcaster and journalist in NYC working on a story about Chinese practice money. I came across some realistic $100 bills with Chinese writing stamped on the side. The internet says they are used for training bank tellers, but I'm skeptical. The notes are illegal in the US according to the Secret Service. Is the stamp just plausible deniability for the sellers, who are all over Ebay and Amazon but constantly having their listings removed hours after posting due to anti-counterfeiting rules? Or are these notes really used in China, where cash counting and handling does seem to be on a whole other level? Does anyone know for sure? Do other countries use practice money like this? 

Thank you!

yes, this is really practice money. There are two different types of practice money. One type ist just for practicing counting money. They do not look like foreign paper money. Many banks have practice money of their ow. About 15 years ago I personally saw bank people who were trained to count banknotes very fast.

Amother type of practice money look like real notes. I happen to have a few of such notes (Deutsch mark, British Pound, US Dollars, etc.). They are used to practice changing money (Renminbi to US $ and vice versa, for instance).

I've seen something for the first time in Las Vegas while playing casino. One guy showed me that these kinds of money with Chinese symbols are accepted at some casinos. I was very shocked when I saw how he got chips with this money. I don't know how about you, but I miss 2019 when all casinos were opened and no COVID-19 was outside. But anyway, I am still playing online casinos. I use sites from https://www.noaccountscasino.nl/ because I got there a lot of exciting and big bonuses. In this way, I cashed out a very nice amount of money last week.
