Disarmed Exploding Dye Pack.
This is a hollowed-out pack of $20's that has been stringed together. This pack was intended to carry an exploding dye cartridge in order to stain the stolen money and the bank robber(s). This "pack" would be mixed in with the genuine cash to be given out by a teller in the event of a bank robbery. These $20's are unredeemable as more than 50% of each note has been removed. This is an interesting novelty item. It has been disarmed, but the electronic "guts" still remain and we see that this item was constructed in July 1997 by a Georgia firm. There will be no returns on this lot for any reason.
