Yes, that is stated at under;
CHAPTER 25—COUNTERFEITING AND FORGERY
...under section § 474. Plates, stones, or analog, digital, or electronic images for counterfeiting obligations or securities.
For one to engage in counterfeiting, the intent to defraud must be there.
I'm not a lawyer, I don't know whether or not you are. As you know, this is the section I was quoting from: http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/18/us ... -000-.html
I really do not think that the word "counterfeiting" in a section heading means anything much, from a legal point of view. It is a section heading, not a part of the 'law' itself if you know what I mean. We all know that laws created for one purpose are often extended into new areas as they become relevant there.
Furthermore, the text in this next section makes plain that counterfeiting is still an activity that can occur, even when an intent to defraud is not there: http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/18/us ... -000-.html
To put it another way, if "intent to defraud" was automatically a part of counterfeiting, then there would be no need to qualify counterfeiting in that section with the "intent to defraud" add-on. And there is no qualifying "defraud" in the paragraph I quoted.
I don't think we've even mentioned yet: http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/18/us ... -000-.html
§ 475. Imitating obligations or securities; advertisements
"Whoever designs, engraves, prints, makes, or executes, or utters, issues, distributes, circulates, or uses any business or professional card, notice, placard, circular, handbill, or advertisement in the likeness or similitude of any obligation or security of the United States issued under or authorized by any Act of Congress ... shall be fined under this title."
Of course, you will do as you like and I doubt it will ever be an issue ... unless you perform for cranky IRS agents or police or like individuals.
