What the Heck is Hell Money?
Fascinating. It is money donated to the dead in Chinese culture, for them to spend in the afterlife. Colorful and intriguing. The site is a portal to a host of hoodoo and other esoteric pages (scroll down for info), a fun place to take a break from routine. This comes via the E-Sylum newsletter of the Numismatic Biblomania Society, a great source for all sorts of numismatic news and information.
