The large numbers of different bank notes created a situation where shopkeepers frequently came in contact with notes that they had never seen before, making it difficult to determine whether or not a note was counterfeit—“counterfeiters exploited people’s unfamiliarity with the currency” (Mihm, 2007, 8)....   [tags: Currency, Economy, Banks]
