Typical treasures. Not sure if the different currencies are visable, see if you can name them.

Great composition. The colors and arrangement of the jar and currency are very good. The objects in the center and on the right look like modeled Chestnuts. Are those used as money somewhere? Is that a real confederate note in the backgrount?

Great shot. Now the thing that concerns me is the legality of the shot. It is my understanding that it is not legal to photograph and publish photos of US Currency still in circulation. Are there any forum lawyers or paralegals who can pipe in on this. I am not totally sure.

Acorns. Aren't they currency only among squirrels? I've even seen mini-wars fought over them.

Photographing current currency. Hmm...I remember something about that too, Cal. I suppose we could find the answer somewhere on the 'Net.

What's the coin with the square hole in it? I've seen it elsewhere but can't remember anything about it.

I keeping with any legalities, please remove this thread.
I appologize for any misconceptions and I would not want to compromise the integrity of this site.
Thanks,

I don't think that law applies to coins, and the paper money shown has certainly been out of circulation for a long time. If the feds come to get you, we'll all gang up on them and have a great and joyous revolution. Maybe even throw some tea into the harbor.

hmm...i dunno about the legality...or even if this is considered "publishing"..

we can always remove it if it's a problem...but it could only be the 'paper money'...

anyway, about the image
nice work with the composition and setup!
nice shot!

Boy, talk about opening a can of worms!
The Confederate Note is bogus, the coins are US ,Singapore, Russia, Japan.
The black thing is a chard from somewhere in Az, and the neighbors' squirrels are still after me.
Hopefully, the Treasure-y Dept. and the A.S.P.C.A. won't read this.

Sincerely though, thank you for all your concern.
Dick
