same kind of thing in canada. we have coinage now for $1 & $2 currency,but we used to have notes.
i once used a couple of crisp $1's at a convenience store,and i guess the clerk was a newer immigrant.
he had never seen a 1 dollar bill and was very skeptical! he didn't want to accept them at first,but along came another patron,and between both of
us,we convinced the clerk they were real!
no hard feelings at the end of it all,we actually had a good chuckle at the end of it all!
no jail time for me! BUT,i will hold onto my 1 & 2 dollar bills just for keepsakes.
they never will go up in value anyway.
