The Magic Money Maker
This type of toy money maker is over 100 years old. The illustration of the money maker below is from the book Magic, Stage Illusions and Scientific Diversions, by Albert A. Hopkins, 1901.

Do I need to say that you must supply both the blank paper and the actual money to make this device print money for you?
In the past, these types of money maker machines were used in a con game, where the con artist would sell the device to victims with the promise that it could actually print money.
