OPINION OF THE COURT

PER CURIAM:

1

This is an appeal from a judgment of conviction entered by the District Court pursuant to a jury verdict finding the defendant appellant, Walter Guinn Walser, guilty of conspiring to possess and pass counterfeit money; possession of counterfeit money with intent to defraud; and passing counterfeit money with intent to defraud.

2

On this appeal Walser challenges as prejudicial error several of the trial judge's rulings on the admission of evidence; his refusal to give requested instructions to the jury; and 'in pressuring the jury to reach a verdict.'

3

On review of the record, we are of the opinion that the stated challenges are without merit.

4

The judgment of conviction will be affirmed.
