I am looking for a good way to count 10 one dollar bills as 6. I have tried a couple of ways that utilize cards but that doesn't seem to work well with currency.
Any advice!

If your routine allows for the gaffing of a bill or 2, then the count would differ depending on which way the ends of the bills are rotated.

There are no gaffs.

Thanks,
but Kaps won't work. It needs to be a real count like an Emsley(maybe a reverse Emsley.)

If the count that Fred Kaps used won't work for what you are doing, I take it you are wanting to hide a bill or two of a different denomination? If not, then a count such as what Kaps used should work fine.

If you are hiding a different bill any type of 4 as for count etc. Should work fine just play around with it and find what you like best and then use it.

You also said it has to be a real count. Any count like the Elmsley count is not a real count it's a false count.

A real count is taking each bill and counting the exact number without keeping anything hidden.

Kap's count, as in Kap's Currency, allows you to make a few bills appear to be more than you actually have. It does not make it look like you have fewer than you have.

A 6 dollar repeat gimmic would work, but apparently the need is for non-gimmicked bills. Maybe you could

1) minimally gimmick as done for the invisible deck
2) hide the extra bill in a manner done in Hundy 500 (but that tends to need a gimmick)
3) pure slight of hand? maybe someone has some ideas.

If you have newer bills (ie crisp) then possibly a reverse spread count might work for you.

Joro from Germany has 6 bill repeat in his "Das Joro Buch" book. He doesn`t use any gimmicked bill for that routine and he counts 19 bills as 6. It looks very good. Also, if you want to use Elmsley cout it is very easy to do. Count single,single,push block and steal back 2, single,single,single.

Holding the bills in "dealing grip" obtain a pinky break under the bottom bill and count the bills by raising them to eye level to show the other side.

Us a pinkey pull down instead of a buckling action, and do what amounts to a buckle count.
