Dollar Bill Art: Defacing Currency for Our Amusement

by


Now I’m pretty sure it’s illegal to draw on U.S. currency, but the way I see it, it’s your money and you should be allowed to do what you want with it. So while these hacked dollar bills are probably no longer legal tender, they are pretty damned awesome anyhow.

I can’t decide if Bob Ross, the Oompa Loompa or the Lincoln Facehugger is my favorite. All I know is that I’d totally use cash more often than my debit card if paper money were this funny.

    Paper currency is legally defined as a “national bank obligation,” and as such, defacement is regulated by statute 18 USC 333, which states, “[w]hoever mutilates, cuts, defaces, disfigures, or perforates, or unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking association, or Federal Reserve bank, or the Federal Reserve System, with intent to render such bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt unfit to be reissued, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.” The key here is “unfit to be reissued.” Drawing a moustache on George Washington does not render it unfit to be reissued; it is still easily identifiable as a dollar bill. The exception is writing an advertisement on paper money. This is prohibited, even if it does not change the denomination or appearance of the bill.
