Counterfeit Detector Pen


Sure, the cash is pouring in faster than you can count it — but is it real?

Now you can find out — in the privacy of your own home.

From websites:

    Smart Money® Counterfeit Detector Pen

    The patented Smart Money® Counterfeit Detector Pen has revolutionized counterfeit detection!

    Since the advent of color photocopy machines and printers, there has been a surge in casual counterfeiting.

    Dri Mark's Counterfeit Detector pen is a highly effective and inexpensive tool for detecting bad bills and deterring counterfeiters from passing phony currency in the first place.

    Simply make a small mark on U.S. currency.

    An amber mark passes the test, a dark brown or black mark means the bill is probably counterfeit.

    Works on all new design U.S. currency (bills series 1959 and later).

    Simple to use and very reliable.


But how does it work?
