I am very much interested in purchasing this, but want to gain a better understanding about how much time it takes to prepare each individual bill. So, if anybody owns this I would appreciate your insight about the necessary preparation and whether you like the product based on what you've received.

It should only take a couple minutes. Not hard work either. There are a few things you would want to pick up to make it more efficient. I'm still waiting on mine from Amazon. I think the strength of the reveal in the right situation is worth it for sure.

I love the font, the ease of making it, and the tool gives you a few options. As I said above, I'm working on a deck-less method so all I'll need for some occasions are the bills. Strip everything down, and you're revealing a card on their bill in place of the signature. I think presented right, it's a strong moment and this tool makes that effect practical. It really is a, "if you like what you see on the trailer" kind of thing, if you're happy with all of the above.

Much better: Paul Harris's COUNTERFEIT SPECTATOR from 25 years ago.
It's all in the reflexes.

Without going into exact detail, I can summarize it into 2 parts, prepping the bill and finishing the bill.

Part 1. The method explained in the instruction video for preparing the bill is basically the same used in Daniel Garcia's Fraud or Josh Janousky's Serialsly. You may already have the materials needed, if not it's a few bucks at walmart or the hardware store.

Part 2. Finishing the bill is where the Treasury device comes in. The device allows you to add 3 possible card reveals to the dollar.

As I mentioned in an earlier comment, the device is a really cool idea. Honestly, I'm surprised someone hasn't released something like this in the past already.

Hi, may I kindly ask whether does this only works with US currency? Thanks

That's not true. You can use any denomination you want. I choose to use dollars b/c I believe they are most common and I use a feature of it in my patter.

As long as you can erase the ink on a bill, it works.

In the time it takes to watch an episode of Seinfeld you can create 100 bills. The effect has the suprise/reaction potential of card to mouth or sponge balls and you give them a dollar bill that they will never spend. For workers and people that perform a lot this is gold.

I just got this. The potential to add a few more options in the gimmick was missed. I wonder why they didn't use all spaces?
