Making the big money… part 1…

Just playing with my digital microscope.

I am almost done with the paper money, including ones from my travels.

This post focuses… HA!… on an American two-dollar bill, and a British pound note.

WIN_20190730_13_54_41_Pro

I am starting the post with the two-dollar bill.

WIN_20190730_13_55_04_Pro

Then the pound note.

WIN_20190730_13_55_17_Pro

See if you can tell when the pound note shows up.

These are all taken at the zoomed-out level of the digital microscope. I was thinking of running it over these same two bills on the really-zoomed-in level after this, if anyone is interested. If not, I will start on some coins, after a suitable break for other stuff.

Uh, that is two lips and a nose. At this level, you can see what things are.

I did notice a strange thing on the back of the back of this bill. There is a reproduction of a famous painting done as an engraving.

When you zoom in like this, it is funny how many people in it look like George Washington.

WIN_20190730_13_57_43_Pro

Not all of them do.

WIN_20190730_13_57_53_Pro

It is amazing how these dots look like little people through the naked eye.

WIN_20190730_13_58_02_Pro

Ooooh… fancy shoe buckles!

WIN_20190730_13_58_15_Pro

1776 was a good year… for freedom!

WIN_20190730_13_58_39_Pro

That guy didn’t shave.

WIN_20190730_14_00_12_Pro

And that rude gentleman still has his hat on indoors.

WIN_20190730_14_02_08_Pro

Does anybody want to see all this even closer?

WIN_20190730_14_02_18_Pro

We can zoom in until those lines fill most of the image. You can see the filaments in the paper. You can see the ink spreading into the paper.

WIN_20190730_14_02_33_Pro

Or are you sick of this. I do wonder what the coins will look like.

WIN_20190730_14_02_43_Pro

They might be boring, but I doubt it.

WIN_20190730_14_02_56_Pro

Uh… does that say: kofefe???

WIN_20190730_14_03_21_Pro

I know what that is.

WIN_20190730_14_03_53_Pro

Could you tell when we moved on to the pound note???

WIN_20190730_14_04_07_Pro

I want to watch a documentary about printing money!

WIN_20190730_14_04_39_Pro

Is that Issac Newton???

WIN_20190730_14_05_02_Pro

Did you know he was on the back of the pound note?

WIN_20190730_14_06_38_Pro

Oh yeah, I would recognize his fingernails anywhere.

    Is it Starbuck’s money? Buy me a coffee.
    In my dreams, those wild wild dreams the money is always greener, somewhere over the boarder. Which boarder? Sorry, did I say something. No, of course I didn”t!

    I knew it was Newton, because I have a British pound note too – also a 5 Pound, and a Scottish 1 Pound. Newton returns among the British coinage. The 2 Pound coin does not have milled edges. Instead, they are engraved with his quote, “Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants.”
    Nice toy! Must be fun. 🙂
