 The program just ended and it was very interesting and went on to show some of the printing processes and talk about those counterfeit detectors that retailers use and there flaws.

I see that Venture is on again later today at 6:30- 7:00 here in Thunder Bay and it could very well be a repeat of the same program.

Looks like it was on quite the while ago

Sunday, February 13th:
Meet Wesley Weber, a man whose risky business operated outside of the law, and made lots of cash - literally. He churned out fake money by the tens of thousands of dollars and ruined our $100 bill.  Plus - are businesses doing enough to protect themselves against counterfeit cash?

I collect banknotes depicting Tallships. And to a lesser degree, all watercrafts.
