Just goes to show that sometimes people aren't quite as greedy as others. It almost certainly still costs far less than $5 for the counterfeiter to make one of these notes. I suppose they thought that the smaller denominations are less likely to be examined carefully (which is probably true).

I wonder how good these ones are...
