Although most common in the obsolete currency category, Federal raised notes have always fascinated me. These were considered possibly illegal to collect but I don't think that the Feds have actually prosecuted anyone for collecting them. They were certainly illegal to make when made with the intent to deceive. They are offered from time to time on Ebay and elsewhere, especially overseas sources where they wouldn't be illegal to possess or sell. Pretty good work on this one. Deceptive.

    I found an example online of a newer note that’s been raised. This one was discovered and then stamped counterfeit.

    It's not counterfeit and should still be redeemable for $1. Replaced ends but over 50% of the original $1 is there.

    Don't think it fooled anyone, but the Shawmut one might have

    Here's a counterfeit $1, and a genuine $1 raised to a $20
