Just wondering:

Did anyone else catch the goof with the money stolen from The Bank of El Paso by Indio's gang in FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE?

It's only on camera for a few seconds after Colonel Mortimer cracks the safe, but I believe that the banknotes which appeared briefly on camera were stamped "CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA".

Not unusual in  and of itself, except that the films were all set in the mid-1870s/early-1880s, and Confederate money was worthless to anyone except a currency collector after April 1865.

Funny how they'd make a mistake like that, especially since THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY wasn't filmed until later (it was the last one filmed, but the first one chronologically), and it was the only one of the three set during the Civil War.

John, you're absolutely right, and I'm surprised we've never had anyone point this out before.

I never noticed it, but I checked it yesterday after seeing this topic. It's not easy to tell from KC's screenshots, but there are 50, 100 and 500 dollar bills in the safe.

As long as we're talking about movie flaws...

Who else noticed the boom mic in the "apoligze to my mule" scene in FAFDM?  It's in the upper left part the frame.
