Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Thaumiel

Special Containment Procedures: While on Site, SCP-XXXX will be placed inside a standard containment locker (premission from Site Director is required). Otherwise SCP-XXXX must be secured in an armored vehicle.

Description: SCP-XXXX resembles modern paper currency in composition, size and appearance. On the obverse side of SCP-XXXXX, an Arabic numeral value in the center is surrounded by symbols which could not be linked to any known civilization. On the reverse side it is entirely white.

SCP-XXXX is presumed to have been circulating in the global economy for an unknown amount of time, finally reaching Dr. Schwartz (see Addendum XXXX.1 for detailed timeline).

The item was classified as anomalous after the discovery of it being valuated similarly by any sufficiently intelligent being. SCP-XXXX is worth ████ dollars1.

Description Update 23.04.2017: SCP-XXXX was re-classified as Thaumiel for its potential to facilitate trade with sufficiently intelligent, uncooperative and dangerous SCPs.

Description Update 06.05.2017: The termination of a sufficiently intelligent being holding SCP-XXXX increases the value in the center of SCP-XXXX by one. Which causes an increase in SCP-XXXX's worth (measured with dollars) by █.
