Luminol and money

Money is dirty. These are some luminol traces on a banknote. Luminol is used to detect blood traces in forensic sciences and criminal investigations. In this case I think it is really blood. The money comes from a rural area in Africa where animals slaughtered on the market and the meat is sold directly from the butcher. This could explain the traces, at least I hope.
