Most often in Russia are in circulation rubles, dollars and euros.
If you are careful and do not rush to get money, you can immediately identify a counterfeit bill and avoid an unpleasant situation in the future.
Look at the banknote for a gap, especially looking at the watermark.
Thousand-ruble & nbsp-bills forge more often. On genuine money, the color distribution is uneven - there are also lighter and darker areas with a smooth transition from one to the other. On counterfeits, the watermark is usually monophonic - very dark. When examining a five thousandth note in the fields, you can see watermarks in the form of a number 5000 and a portrait of Muravyov-Amursky. They have areas lighter or darker than the background, like flowing one into the other.
On the front of dollars issued after1996, on the right is a watermark with the image of the president. US money, printed before 1996, is protected only with the help of special "monetary" paper with variegated fibers. Therefore, they are often forged.
A few gradations of gray are clearly marked on the watermark of the euro. One tone says that you have a fake bill in front of you.
Check if the color changes when the bill is tilted.
On the thousand-ruble note bear - the coat of armsYaroslavl - should turn from raspberry to green. On the five thousandth note, the coat of arms of Khabarovsk changes its color from crimson to golden-green, and on the ornamental ribbon, the dark letters of the PP become visible, which brighten with light turn.
On dollars from different angles, the numbers change from green to black.
A color-changing paint is used when printing bills of 50 euros or more. At right angles, the numbers on the field look purple, and under sharp - brown or olive.
Find the microtext.
Through a magnifying glass on a five thousandth note you can see a line of 5 000 and an abbreviation of the Central Bank of Russia.
On dollars, in the same way, inside the numbers you can see the USA inscription and the figures denoting the denomination, and on the frame of the portrait - microprinting.
On the euro, microtext is not used, it is worth paying attention to holograms and a protective mother of pearl band with the denomination denomination and the symbol of the euro.
Look closely at the security thread.
On fake rubles, the thread always goes over the numbers.
On the protective thread of real dollars printed US letters, denomination and a simplified image of the American flag. However, there is no thread on the bills issued before 1990.
Protective thread on the euro, in contrast to threads on rubles and dollars, is visible not only in the clearance and does not contain any inscriptions.
Touch the seal.
"Relief" is a thousand and five thousand rubles. On a thousandth note, you can find microperforation, holes in which should look evenly clear. The denomination should not be rough. On a five thousandth note there is a convex sign for people with poor eyesight (three strips and two dots) and the inscription "The ticket of the bank of Russia".
The dollar can "feel" the entire black (front) side. Especially there is a deep seal on the dark elements of the portrait. By the way, this paint has magnetic properties.
On the euro, the line with the ECB abbreviation in five languages is recognized to the touch.
