Scooby Demotivation Fortune by Jaguaro Scooby Demotivation Fortune by Jaguaro
Did you tell everyone that you wanted that certain present, got the large package that you knew would be perfect, only to discover....it was a gaudy sweater?

Reminds me of my favorite Scooby-Doo episode "A Night Of Fright Is No Delight," when Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Velma and Daphne spent the night in a haunted mansion, while other heirs to the fortune of Colonel Sanders would get his fortune. It was a lot of money....confederate money, that is.

So it fits well into the latest of my Scooby-Doo Demotivation Posters. The word is "Fortune" and it says "You Could Receive a Huge Inheritance Soon. Unfortunately, It Is Probably In Confederate Money."

The last version of this that I had up got busted by DA. So I posted the lineart that I drew here, so I won't get in trouble again.

Then again, this is a de-motivation, so who knows....

PS: Some user wryly noted last time I had the other version of this up that perhaps Confederate money might be worth more than the US dollar now!

Why's that a bad thing? That probably like quintuples the worth of the inheritance considering how much good-quality confederate dollars go for now XD.

Collector's items, no doubt.

Indeed. A good, say, ten dollar federal confederate bill (as in produced by the central government as opposed to its states) goes for around 90- 100 USD. Given that these ones here have been locked away in a safe and not been subjected to too much wear-and-tear? That box is gray gold.

For collectors...would have to be in mint condition.

Oh no, far from it. Even damaged bills go for a good price-- I should know, I collect them some. These aren't comic books; Confederate money wasn't ever printed to remain pristine, every single piece that is in collections today has been handled at some point in time for monetary transaction, or was intended for it. Of course, the less damage the better, but mint condition is nearly impossible to find, if any exist. A chest full of them that haven't been touched for over a hundred years? That's probably one of the best deals you can get.

I remember hearing a Georgian in 1863 predict that an oak leaf would be worth more than a CSA dollar.  Now they have the same texture, at least.

Well yeah, that was when the CSA dollar was gonna be legal tender. If the US suddenly collapsed, in two hundred years, our currency would be worth a lot as collectors' items as well.

Sounds like a quote from Belloq in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Civil War collectors might like the dough.
