Re: Cashing in old bills

you can always leave your old coins or banknotes as tips in a restaurant or someplace else. it can help the hobby and create new collectors. Steve Wozniak used to do that with $2 bills and i think it's a great idea. he did that as a joke but it surely helped the hobby at some point

Poor quality control.. probably too late to return it to the Mint to exchange it for a better quality one.
