If your target is $27, you are shooting elastic skeet!

It stretches & oh, so much more. It is elastic. Says so in line one of the Federal Reserve Act, 1913.

    An Act To provide for the establishment of Federal reserve banks, to furnish an elastic currency, to afford means of rediscounting commercial paper, to establish a more effective supervision of banking in the United States, and for other purposes.

    Be it enacted by the. Senate and House* of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the short title of this Act shall be the "Federal Reserve Act." Wherever the word "bank" is used in this Act, the word shall be held to include State bank, banking association, and trust company, except where national banks or Federal reserve banks are specifically referred to. The terms "national bank" and "national banking association" used in this Act shall be held to be synonymous and interchangeable. The term "member bank" shall be held to mean any national bank, State bank, or bank or trust company which has become a, member of one of the reserve banks created by this Act. The term "board" shall be held to mean Federal Reserve Board; the term "district" shall be held to mean Federal reserve district; the term "reserve bank" shall be held to mean Federal reserve bank.

First sentence creates elastic cash.

Pardon me whilst I digress: "Some entrepreneurs lost more than money – they eroded some of their credibility and good reputation. We won’t risk a libel suit here, but we know of several individuals who employed dubious measures [US Federal Reserve Note: an elastic measure] to capitalize on the " return of Halley’s Comet."
Happy hunting.
