I would say the bottom is fake. If you look at JACKSON the bottom one appears to be spelt JACXSON to me

Sad that a kids tried to buy lunch at school with a fake $20 bill and got suspended. He didn't know it was fake.. and now I can see how he didn't know..

I just hold it up to the light and make sure that there’s not only a “hidden” face but that it matches the other one on the bill. Some criminals will bleach a 1 and print another on the same paper

How can a person see if it's fake or real? Especially a business owner

That’s a good counterfeit bill did the paper have the correct feel to it even

Honest question- Is it illegal to possess (as a collector for example) counterfeit FOREIGN money? I know it's technically a crime to even possess counterfeit US cash. For the record the only collectible counterfeit cash I have is defunct Confederate bills.

I learned that when I worked at Grabers

I guessed right!!!

Top bill is real, going by the colored fibers I can see in them, and the ink doesn't smudge.

People never learn

The shine on the lower right "20" is difficult to replicate in a counterfeit. I once noticed I had a counterfeit this way. That and I got three bills with the same serial number. Turned them over to my local bank who handled the necessary reporting.

Pen works good except for washed Bill's as they are on currency paper. It's getting to where you need UV/FL to catch some of them.

The ink on the back of the top is more green around the border so I'm guessing the top one is real and the bottom one is fake.

Top is real

Meth is bad but weed is good for the soul

Bottom one is fake

People! Read the whole post!!! Goodness...they already answered their rhetorical question!!! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . The top one is the real one, by the way.

They have highlighter pens to check for counterfeit bills

Note the square pixels

The top one

Well, I guessed wrong. Good job, DTF!

I say the bottom one the serial number is a little fuzzy and the yellow on the back is a little dark.

You can clearly see the top is bigger and has better colors

Bottem is the fake

The top one

A hearty "Welcome!" to all the visitors coming from across Kansas and beyond for the 42nd annual Trappers Rendezvous, Quivira Council this weekend at Harvey County West Park. This is a really cool event for us to help with (and not just because of the temperature). We're happy we get to share our park with hundreds of new faces. Seems like the weather always likes to sweep in some cold air, but they come out rain or shine (or snow). Here's a bit of the scenery from last year. ... See moreSee less
