What happens with damaged U.S. dollars

殘缺受損的美元紙幣都到哪里去了?

Just trying to find the identifiable parts, like the mouth and nose, eyes, stuff like that. I’ll probably finished it in about an hour. I’ve seen worse, a lot worse. We are in the Mutilated Currency Division. Any money that’s been somehow damaged to the extent where you can’t determine the value, this is the only place in the world that will accept that US currency. It’s just a free service the government provides. We don’t take any taxes out. We don’t charge any fees. It’s just...it’s kind of like having insurance on your money. If something were to happen to it, we are there to reimburse you for it. We require 51 percent of the note to be genuine US currency and we would pay face value on it. The largest by an individual is two million dollars that I can recall, and it was a case that a lot of people just don’t trust banks. So, when the housing market crashed about ten years ago, they withdrew two million dollars from their account and they stored it in the garage for over a period of years. And water had...they had the money stored in a bag, but water had creeped into the bag and the notes had solidified together when they went to retrieve it. Animals like to chew up money. So, sometimes it’s just, if you leave 20 dollars on the coffee table, the dog will come and chew it up. Sometimes the dog will actually eat it and the owner will wait a few days and then wait for the dog to process it out. We do require you to wash it off.

我在努力找出這些美元上可辨認的部位,比如嘴和鼻子、眼睛,諸如此類的東西。我大概會在一個小時內完成,我之前見過比這更糟糕的,比這糟糕得多。我們現在位于美國殘缺貨幣部門。如果你的錢財受到某種程度的損害,使得你無法確定其價值,那么這是世界上唯一一個接受這種受損美元的地方。這是政府提供的一種免費服務。我們不收任何稅,不收任何費用,這有點像給你的錢買保險。如果你的錢財出了什么事,我們會對你進行補償。 我們要求這些貨幣中至少有一半以上的部分可識別為美元,我們將支付其面值。我記得有一次一個人帶來的數目最大的一筆錢是二百萬美元,很多人就是不信任銀行。 因此,大約十年前房地產市場崩潰時,他們從賬戶中提取了二百萬美元,并將其存放在車庫中,存了一年多。他們把錢裝在袋子里,但是水悄悄地滲進袋子里,當他們去取回錢的時候,紙幣已經結在一起了。動物喜歡啃錢。所以有時候如果你把二十美元留在咖啡桌上,狗就會過來咬它。有時狗會把錢吃下去,主人就要等幾天,等待狗將其排泄出來。我們確實會要求主人把它洗干凈。

This case looked like it was some kind of a ATM type of machine where it caught on fire. They’re claiming 38,000. Some of the money is totally burnt. In this bag here, totally wet. Been sitting almost a year, so mold has grown on the sides of it and stuff. So this stuff is still pretty wet, but it’s not too bad to separate and count them. Count them out in batches of a hundred. Typically, all of our cases come through the US Postal Service. We have a PO box, and then those are delivered to us by an armored car service. Usually get about 24 thousand submissions a year and we reimburse just north of 40 million dollars.

這個看起來像是一臺自動取款機類型的機器著火導致的。他們稱損毀了三萬八千美元。有些錢完全燒光了。在這個袋子里,全濕了。這些錢在袋子里放了快一年,所以它的兩邊都長了霉菌什么的。所以這些東西還是很濕,但是要把它們分離開來然后進行核對也不是很難。一批一批地數出來。通常,我們所有的案件都是通過美國郵政服務寄來的。我們有一個郵政信箱,然后由裝甲車運送給我們。我們通常一年大約會收到兩萬四千份申請,我們的賠償額略高于四千萬美元。
