How do blind people denote the denomination of paper currency?

John is correct, it's dealt with by honest folks. That's how I amassed a small fortune. When I asked, I was told by the feel, noise, smell & size-taste may be in there somewhere. Normally for any large purchase somebody else will handle the transaction. Do or have they been short changed or ripped off, sure scumbags don't care who they steal from

I don't think they can. They must rely on the honesty of the person during the transaction. (There was a blind gent who worked a concession stand in the Pentagon years ago. he always knew what you gave him. I remember he was tested at times by a couple enlisted guys. Perhaps he was not totally blind. But legally so.)

A $10 bill smells different from a $1 bill. Try it out; you'd be surprised.

Ray Charles demanded single dollars as payment for a long time because of crooked promoters.

I think they fold each bill a certain way. However they obviously need help with that

I personally, have never seen a blind person at a checkout counter, it would be hard for them to even shop. My blind cousin did a lot of things on his own, family did his shopping, or went with him.
