About 25 years ago I worked as a night clerk in a all night walk in store. We kept a $2 bill at the bottom of the $1 stack in the till. We had the serial number recorded. If we got robbed and the perp was caught with the money we had the proof. We were smart enough to watch for things like someone coming in with rare coins, silver dollars, etc. Of course we took it as tender.

If the cops were not trained well enough to at least recognize legal tender then Baltimore PD has a very huge training problem. Best Buy's training program is a joke as well it seems. The manager should have known $2 bills are legal. It's his job to know. He just opened up Best Buy to a false arrest law suit.

Re: Just for laughs try to pass off some dollar coins ... just not the 1971 silver dollars.

Like these... perhaps?

'casue that'll be what we will be using... if Biden follow Obama--

BTW once owned both an 1836... silver dollar and 1836... Half Dollar.

I lived in San Antonio then and like to carry them down to the Alamo as they gave me a close feeling to the events of those 1836 days.

Doesn’t everyone remember a waitress in Kentucky accepting one of the fake George Bush $200 illegal immigrant bills.

not even the cops were bright enough to note the bills authenticity and apologize.....

a sad comment on today’s general level of common sense

To: Be Careful

As if our own Republican leaders are not do enough to besmirch the Tea Party, especially the traitor Sen. McConnell. We have got to primary that old fool. Matt Bevin is ready to take him down in the primary lets help him all we can. We need fights like Benin, not wimps like McConnell. Go to the Bevin for Senate website and invest in the future.

Commenting on the incident, Baltimore County police spokesman Bill Toohey told the Sun: “It’s a sign that we’re all a little nervous in the post-9/11 world.”

What? What an idiot. He may as well have blamed George Bush.

But, I bet they would take that Clinton $3 bill that was handed around when he was president.

I have done the same for years! It works!

At a McDonalds the cashier looked at the bill, then me, and asked “is this real?”

..."I attend a certain convention every year. One of the vendors obtains stacks of $2 bills and uses them as change."...

Yep. Back in the 70's -80s we used to attend a huge yearly collectors exposition and made change to small cash sales with two dollar bills, as a marketing gimmick.

Years later, people would remember us, and comment on it, often as much or more than the things that they bought from us for their collections.

Some still carried one around in their wallets or purses, and would pull it out to show us.

This happened in 2005. Does anyone know the “rest of the story” as Paul Harvey used to say? Probably any settlement is hidden behind a non-disclosure agreement.
