Written On Money (photos)

I always find it interesting the way that people use money. While most of us think that money is used financial transactions, for some it’s also a place to jot down notes, scribble and doodle. I came across this site with photos of stuff people write on money which I found to be interesting. I immediately went to the US money I have and found one with a mark on it – it looks to be a stamp of some type although I can’t make out what it says.

I couldn’t find anything on the Japanese money I currently have in my wallet, but I will be on the lookout for some writing in the future. If you find something interesting on the money that you have, please feel free to send me a photo or scan and maybe I’ll start my own gallery…

  1. My husband goes to http://www.wheresgeorge.com/ when he gets a bill that is either stamped or written on with that and puts in the seriel number to see where that bill has been. That’s sort of fun.

    Australia has this horribly practical plastic money. If anyone wrote on it, you would be able to wipe it off with a wet tissue. It just doesn’t feel like “real” money.

  3. I found a bill in my husbands wallet that said ‘love you Jen’….I wondered if it was on purpose some malicious intent to irritate married men, or if it was a simple note from a Jen…

    Is it legal to write on money? e.g. write a website address in small letters, in pen.

    Because you can soak it to take it off, is it stil defacing it?
