SammyFrank: First off, I`m not an alternate account. Secondly, if you had bothered to read my post at all you would have seen that I am disagreeing with Mr.Knowitall. The government would only be able to press charges if someone were defacing money in order to pass it off as a different amount. Common in a lot of forms of counterfeiting. My post was backing you up by reinforcing that the government can`t do a thing if you decide to destroy currency as long as there is no fraudulent intent. Please try to remember these simple steps; read, think and then post before you indulge in being a jackass.

"Section 331 of Title 18 of the United States code provides criminal penalties for anyone who “fraudulently alters, defaces, mutilates impairs, diminishes, falsifies, scales, or lightens any of the coins coined at the Mints of the United States.” This statute means that you may be violating the law if you change the appearance of the coin and fraudulently represent it to be other than the altered coin that it is. As a matter of policy, the U.S. Mint does not promote coloring, plating or altering U.S. coinage: however, there are no sanctions against such activity absent fraudulent intent."
So as long as you aren`t trying to pass it off as a coin of different value for the purposes of trading it for goods or services then you`ll be fine. The government doesn`t really promote it but they couldn`t sto
Ah, just realised i have no idea what a machinist hammer, a dremmel with a cutting bit or a buffing wheel actually are.
