lol funny thread. This may sound snobby, but I absolutely hate touching money, and if I have to, like at work, I always wash my hands as soon as I can.... and watch the black water come off of my hands from all of the grime on the money. ew.

I like to use a charge card all the time, maybe you should collect those instead, a lot less germs involved. Just a suggestion.

Oh no, everytime you use that charge card the magnetic strip picks up all the germs from all the previous cards that were run through the machine.

Wow, someone with the same hobby I have.

Obviously a beginner as I have worked my way through $1, $5, $10, $20, $50 and am now working on collecting $100 dollar bills.

So if you are sending a dollar to the OP will you also send me a $100 dollar bill?

I appreciate it as the collecting process seems to go slower for the larger denominations.

Then again they would only be worth one Dollar each or would they be worth more as a collection as I then would have one million items that are the same but would really be different from one another. Let me know if you would send me one to add to my collection if I were to ask you for one. One good thing about collecting Dollar Bills is my wife does not seem to get upset about it and she tells me at least the Dollar Bills don't take up a lot of space in the house.
So dollar bills are like snowflakes... lol
