Stupid Questions
« on: November 13, 2009, 09:31:46 AM »
I have a friend that collects $1 bills that were made in Dallas (they have the letter K on them - some family tradition or something) and puts them in her vacation fund.

She's getting married soon and I wanted to get her a stack of these singles with Ks.

Anybody have any idea how one might go about getting these in bulk? Can you call up a mint/bank and get them? I can't imagine they get this kind of request very often.

My Googling has turned up nothing, but that's not Google's fault.

www.ustreas.gov is the main site but how about uncut sheets of bills? http://www.moneyfactory.gov/store/section.cfm/69/83

That would work if I could be sure they'd all be Ks.

I collect bills too, and I'm not picky about the denomination or the letters on them  :batteyes:

But if I have to get married to get a stack, forget it.

It's symbolic of our struggle against reality.

It would be a pain, but . . . you could go to your bank and get, say, $200 in $1's.  They should do that at no charge.  Then you'd have to pick out the non-Dallas bills and redeposit them.  Rinse, repeat.

There's bound to be a better way -- if you get uncut sheets, they should all be from the same engraving plant, after all -- but that might be the least-resistance method.

The allure of counterfeiting is obvious. If you could do it without getting caught, you would be able to print your own money and buy whatever you want with it.

No fucking way, dude...not even for a million dollars...

Without reading any of the links in this thread, I'd say you'd have to go to a bank that distributes Dallas mint bills.  Then just buy a bunch.  You should get a pretty good rate for your crappy Philly bills.
Shake your groove thing.

Hoss - the uncut stuff is all from a single printing press. You can choose which one, but they only have so many a year.

I'm hoping this is more obscure than stupid:  Years ago, my brother and I saw like two episodes of a miniseries on BBC America, and he recently asked me if I could remember the title.

Umm . . . :hmm: . . . I can't.  I thought it was 'Fire House' or something like that, but I can't find it.

It was Empire, whether it was British or not -- might've been Australian or (more likely) New Zealish.  Been so long that I can't say.  It was basically a tense soap opera that had a lot of Wuthering Heights in it and also some hints of incestuous problems.  (But, then, Wuthering Heights is full of incest issues, too.)

The basic plot, from what we saw, is that there's this guy, who has a very nice wife.  But there's also this woman who he was best friends with while they were growing up, and they have some kind of too-too intense past history.  The guy clearly has an impulse to abandon his wife and have a mad go at his friend, and his wife is aware of it.  The friend, meanwhile, is a crazy self-destructive artist sort (I'm pretty sure), and there are skeletons bursting out of closets everywhere (child abuse? incest? etc?).

It was all set in foggy-rainy stone-walls small-town somewhere.  The acting and dialogue and all that were a notch above.  It was compelling, which is why we watched a couple of episodes, but it did not give the impression that it was going to have a happy ending.

I can't find a trace of it through IMDb or the googles.  My guess is that it was made between 1985 and 1995.  Anyone have any ideas or know what I'm talking about?  I told my brother I was sure I could find it, but no dice, and I hate that.

Oh, for crying out loud.

I found it through an indirect Wikipedia angle.

But I'm still curious if anyone else has seen it / heard of it and can ID it from my frantic garble.

:slap:

That was my last marriage.
