Better idea: hide gold and silver instead of cotton paper. Dollars lose value through inflation which turns into a hidden tax to the people. The more cash the Federal Reserve prints, the more gold & silver go up in price. If 40 years ago you saved $1,000,000, today it would be worth about $1,000 while the price of gold in the last 40 years has gone from $5/oz. to $1600/oz. Before the Federal Reserve, workers got on average $5 or an ounce of gold. Today there is no backing and minimum wage gives you $320 at $8x40 hrs BEFORE ILLEGAL INCOME TAXES, less than a third of an ounce of gold.
