So I was just wondering how would I take off the one number on the serial so I can have duplicate bills. Someone told me to use an eraser, so I tried that and it didn't work so where do I go from here??

Thank you,
Jeff

What trick are you trying to do ? I don't know who told me this but it might be illegal . Not sure so don't take my word for it . Maybe buy greenish looking paint and put a dab on?

If an eraser doesn't work, try (very carefully) an X-acto knife and slowly scrape the number from the bill. Make sure to use new, crisp, bills from the bank.

I agree with mrunge , but do it carefully don't want to rip the bill. Oh and be careful x-acto knifes are VERY sharp.

I have done this many times with an eraser. Maybe try a different type of eraser.

A #2 should work. If it does not you can use one of those erasable pen erasers...as they tend to be a bit more harsh.

You can also you a piece of fine steel wool. or a piece of very fine sand paper. All of these things have worked for me in the past.

I never tried a #2 pencil eraser, I just tried using one of those eraser blocks that most kids use in school, I don't know why I didn't think of sand paper or steel wool, that's why the magic Café is so helpful. Thanks to you all for your imput, I will have to try them all.

Best,
Jeff

I use fine sandpaper. It takes awhile to get it right.

One of those "eraser blocks that most kids use in school" will not work (unless you have hours free.) They are made for kids that have a heavy hand and are very mild abrasion.

Use an Ink Eraser, the kind that Staples sells with a regular pink eraser on one end and the gray Ink eraser on the other. I have used this for years, takes about a minute.

I never had much luck with "pink" erasers but the "gray" erasers do the job.

It's not true. If it were not legal to do things to American currency (Except counterfeiting.) Would jewlers be able to make rings out of coins etc? This is a myth that has gone on for years and years. There would not be any Scotch & Soda coins, folding coins etc.... Time for this myth to die the death it deserves.
