U.S. LEGAL TENDER LAWS AND THE USE OF MEXICAN AND CANADIAN COINS AND NOTES

Regarding last week's item on the acceptance of Mexican Pesos by a U.S.
business, Granvyl Hulse writes: "What has surprised me is the print
wasted on commenting about a store near the Mexican border accepting
pesos. Most businesses along the Canadian border accept Canadian money
in payment for goods. In some cases they charge an exchange fee, but
some ski areas in northern New York announced that they would accept
Canadian money at par to encourage cross-border trade. What is the
big deal with pesos? I live five miles from the Canadian border in
up-state New Hampshire and I would bet that there isn't a cash register
in this town that does not have some Canadian money in one of its slots."
