A binman who found £10,000 in shredded banknotes has been told he can keep the cash - if he pieces it together. 
Graham Hill, 43, spotted the remains of £10 and £20 notes dumped in rubbish six months ago. He took it to cops, who kept the wad to see if anyone claimed it. Yesterday police told him that no one had come forward and the shredded money was his to keep. 

The Bank of England has said it will replace every note he can stick back together. Pieces must be reassembled correctly as the Bank will look for matching serial numbers...

If you found £10,000 like this man, all shredded up, would you try to piece the money back together?

Yes. I'll definately take the time to try. I'm doing boring filing work during the vacation and piecing money back together can't possibly be as boring
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 12/6/08 - 5:14:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
how much is 10,000 of those squigly things in US dollars?
and one time this gid completly tore apart a 1 dolalr bill into like 30 little pieces and threw it on the floor when he was gonna to a "magic trick" and put it back together from the kid he borrowed it from, the kid didnt want it i took it and tapesd it back together it took like an hour but then after like 30 tries i got the coke machine to accept it and bought a coke.:)

just over $16 000- - you do know what the currency is right?
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 12/6/08 - 6:43:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
Heck yeah.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 12/6/08 - 6:48:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
That's like what, 20,000 USD? Still no. Not patient enough
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 12/6/08 - 7:08:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah. It'd be like a jigsaw puzzle with an actual reward at the end.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 12/6/08 - 9:22:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would try it, but I don't know if I would be successful. I mean... would you tape them? Glue them? What?
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 12/6/08 - 10:23:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
.. I think I'd hire someone to do it for me. I couldn't do it. It'd take me years.

it's gotta be more productive than doing a jigsaw puzzle
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 12/7/08 - 1:06:11 AM EST (GMT-5)
I would TRY. But most likely fail.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 12/7/08 - 1:25:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
Sure, although I would figure it was fake. I guess in this case it isn't.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 12/7/08 - 3:14:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
Sure, I'd grab a friend and we could share the work and the reward.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 12/7/08 - 11:07:45 AM EST (GMT-5)
rofl obviously.
money is money.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 12/7/08 - 11:20:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sure, I would try.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 12/7/08 - 11:27:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sure, but I wouldn't take time off work to do it. I'd just work on it in my spare time.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 12/8/08 - 12:13:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
it would be just my luck that id get it all pieced together and it would be counterfeit
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/9/08 - 5:35:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'd piece it back together if it was still savable. Why the hell not?
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/9/08 - 1:57:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes why not .... At least maybe i would win those
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 1/2/09 - 4:19:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
I would keep it around and do it in my spare time.
13 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 1/27/09 - 10:57:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah. I don't think I have that kind of time, though, so it'd be a long-term thing.

What if I just got the part with the serial numbers matched up?
13 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 2/22/09 - 5:04:24 AM EST (GMT-5)
10k pounds = $20k = sure, why the hell not?
