MORE CHOPMARKS ON MODERN U.S. PAPER MONEY

A web site visitor writes:

My name is Valerie and I am from Puerto Rico I find very interesting all that is related to chopmarks. I have been taking picture of many that I find while at work.

We've discussed these earlier. As Joe Boling wrote, "They are used so that a moneychanger does not have to study a note closely, if it already has his chop showing that he did that before. Sure, they could be forged, but the original user would be quite likely to detect that easily - it's not likely to be a perfect match for the stamp he has on his desk."

Valerie provided several images of chopmarks. Thanks! This is an interesting contemporary numismatic topic, and no reference work that we're aware of has yet been created. -Editor
