Mutilated Money? This Place Will Give You a Fresh Stack


(curious music) – If you have money that’s
been damaged in a fire, in a flood, that’s been
eaten by insects or animals, we’ll evaluate and
determine how much is there and reimburse you for it. (curious music) My name is Eric Walsh,
I’m the assistant manager at the Mutilated Currency Division. Every year, the Mutilated
Currency Division receives about 23,000 cases,
people will send money that’s been somehow damaged, and we reimburse, annually,
about 40 million dollars. It’s a free service
the government provides that we pay dollar in dollar out. We require 51 percent of the
note present to pay on it and that just protects us from paying twice on the same note. Once we determine the amount, we will send a treasury
check for what we discover. We’re pretty low-tech here, so the tools of the trade are
scissors, knives, scalpels, glue and tape, and maybe
a pair of tweezers. The most challenging cases
are usually cases that the money has gotten wet and
sat for long periods of times, and it’ll actually petrify
and be solid as a brick. A lot of it is “the dog ate my money.” We get hundreds of those cases a year. A lot of people will hide their money in the
oven and forget about it, or they’ll get it wet and
put it in the microwave and that will ignite the currency. Our most infamous case
took place in the ’80s, and what happened was a farmer
lost his wallet in a field and discovered that his cow had eaten it, and we always encourage the submitter to send in the package as it is; and the farmer sent in the cow’s stomach, which we were able to
retrieve the wallet from and reimburse the farmer his currency. Our office consists of
just under 20 people, and we have 12 people that examine and process the submissions, and they do roughly between 1,000 and 2,000 claims each year. We do get an increased amount of cases after a natural disaster. Over the past year between the hurricanes and wildfires out in California, we’ve reimbursed over two million dollars. We’re called upon when a lot
of people hit their low point, so any relief that you
could provide someone after they lost all their money in a flood or after their house burned
down is very rewarding. Hopefully we’re a service that
you will never need to use, but in case something does
happen, we’re here for you. (electronic chime)

  • The joke is on you. Money is a fiction that is not backed by gold or silver. It's a fiat debt instrument and is a tool for enslavement. Saving wrecked money is a waste of time and energy. Just like de facto incorporated bankrupt non sovereign governments and all false religions the entire monetary system is a fraud.
