"Money To Burn"
close-up

 

I had some fun with some of the text that is normally found on a real $100.00 bill. In this close-up view you can see some of the changes I made. Bills are signed by the secretary of the treasury not the secretary of Drawing - which I designated as myself.. Just to the right of Franklin, there is an official seal under the number 100 that normally reads "The Department of the Treasury, 1789". I changed that to my copyright information for this piece. It reads "Copyright JDH ART 2002". It may be difficult to read on your computer screen but in the upper left corner my bill reads "Not legal tender for debts public or private.".
