Let’s set the scene: you’ve just discovered your pup chewed away at your entire life savings. Or, last month’s rent was suddenly burned to a crisp after being left in the oven. Bizarre mistakes happen, but what can you do? Submit a claim over to the U.S. Department of Treasury where Eric Walsh, assistant manager of the Mutilated Currency Division, will examine and reimburse you for your damaged stacks. Cheers!

That farmer case where he had to kill his cow in order to retrieve its stomach is not fair, because cows cost money too and so the farmer had to lose big in order to get his money back. That is what happens when you let capitalism take over your life and allow a state to assign value to a worthless piece of paper in exchange for nothing but your trust in its hypothetical worth!

Nameless and Shameless
I know a place that needs to send their money here. A local business had set up a thrift shop in an old barn. Due to an unfortunate accident it burned down to the ground (no one was hurt) and when they found the cash drawer it was charred and black but you can still make out bills and change. They have it on display at their store because the bank refused to take it or have it sent somewhere like this. It was estimated that there is about 200+ in it as well.
