The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 6, February 5, 2006, Article 24

COINS VS PAPER

Stephen P. Woodland writes: "The article "TORN DOLLARS: TWO RIDES
FOR THE PRICE OF ONE" (E-Sylum v9#5) intrigued me.  If public
transportation authorities are worried about riders cheating the
system by tearing dollar bills in half, they should lobby harder
for the withdrawal of the paper dollar and its replacement by a
dollar coin.  These days, it is much harder to counterfeit a coin
and it is significantly more difficult to tear in half."
