The serial numbers are verified to be different. The bills are mixed and any bill is chosen from the stack. You are able to read exactly what the numbers and letter are every time while all the bills are out of sight! This uses an ingenious idea that already exists in bills plus another layer with numbers and patterns Rich discovered years ago..

• Perfect to use as a lie detection test, body language demonstration or as pure mind reading.
• Instant reset once bills are acquired or purchased - use forever.
