    Isn’t defacing legal tender a felony?

    As far as I know defacing legal tender is only against the law if you try to spend it afterward. For example: you cannot shave the sides of a quarter and then try to spend it.

    Scott’s art is amazing!!

    It’s legal in the US. I don’t think it’s legal in Canada, but I could be mistaken. I’m not sure about other parts of the world. Scott doesn’t have fraudulent intent with his alterations. This is why the “penny smasher” machines are okay. They are not intended to alter currency in a fraudulent manner. Obviously you cannot spend the coin after it’s been smashed and imprinted with a Disney character, Sea World, etc. Hope this helps! :)

    You can do whatever you like in the US with your money ’cause it’s yours. BUT you can’t change the VALUE of the money. That is the illegal part.

    Hmm….interesting stuff. The effect is quite cool. And it gives the imagery an interesting duality in it’s meaning.
