Singapore $100 Hell Money looks like the real thing

Tiny Dragon, a company in the US is selling Singapore $100 Hell Money on eBay. The notes are beautifully printed in wonderful detail and features an image of the Jade Emperor, the Taoist monarch of heaven instead of Yusof Ishak, Singapore's first President. Hell bank notes are a form of joss paper printed to resemble legal tender bank notes offered as burnt-offerings to the deceased as often practiced by the Chinese. (Thanks GinGin)
