Dirty money - mostly

Small denomination US dollar notes are quite hard to come by in Zimbabwe. I am quite lucky in that my business takes quite a lot of small currency so each month I start hording it so that I don’t have an issue when it comes to wages which this month I’ll pay on Wednesday. The bank I deal with has in the past been very helpful but I don’t take chances. Amazingly just about the only criterion on defacement is that the notes must not be torn. All the notes in the picture are quite acceptable! I think I am correct in saying that we are using US currency without the USA’s permission so they refuse to change any old notes for new. It’s a bit like the pass the parcel game but in this one you don’t want to be left with the torn notes.

Nothing. If we have the GDP of Spokane it would be a lot!
