I guess you can try -- but those bills are cryin' "Stop!" at the machine. Link goes to the EURion Constellation, and that's just the one that got found out; there are other schemes, count on it.
The battle between coiners and counterfeiters is at least as old as money and if you count buying a pig in a poke only to let the cat outta the bag, it's probably older. In the case of mediums-of-exchange, ain't nobody spozed to water it down but Teh Gummint. They get bent all outta shape when there's competition.
