I was shown a piece of black money as they called it, but they claim that it's actually a US$ bill underneath. Anybody here heard of this? Is this true? They claim that these were authentic US$ bills, and is being stained black to protect from being stolen in transit to hostile places like Afghanistan and Iraq. Is there any truth to these claims? I checked the size it's the same to the US$ bill but the texture is like coated in black carbon of sort. Dear MODS/Admins: If you find my post not appropriate PLEASE DELETE it automatically.
