If you write a name on a dollar bill with a red marker, does it devalue the money?

Even though it is technically illegal to deface currency no one ever says a word, when that bill eventually makes it's way back to a bank it will be sent back to the federal reserve for destruction under whatever rules are in effect at the time

No it is still worth 20 dollars. However you can get in trouble for that while it is unlikely it can happen, Also if money is too defaced some places will not accept it kind of like many places won't accept dollars taped together it will likey go to the bank and will eventually be destroyed and if you do a really good job someone might keep it

if you draw or write on money, disfigure it or do anything of the sort, then you are liable to be punished for up to six months jail or with a fine. In the United States VS Amidon, 1980, a piece of misdemeanour information charged two counts of mutilating national bank obligations in violation of 18 U.S.C. s. 333.
No, it won't devalue but you are committing a crime by doing so.

No, I was told that banks would accept it if more than half was good.
