STORM LAKE, Iowa -- In a Tuesday Facebook post, The Storm Lake Police Department warned about fake $50 bills, intended for use as movie props, found in the area.
According to the post, the fake bills were confiscated during a search warrant execution Tuesday. The bills are labeled "For motion picture use only" in the upper right corner of the bills' front sides, where "The United States of America" would be printed on a genuine bill. The motion picture message is also printed along the top and bottom of the left side.
Perhaps even more noticeably, the facial expression of Ulysses S. Grant appears distorted on the counterfeits -- his right eyebrow is raised and darker than normal, and he has an exaggerated frown.
The Storm Lake Police Department requests anyone call them if they suspect they have received a counterfeit bill.
