North Texans get sneak peek at new $100 bills

Posted: Updated:

The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas and U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing gave North Texans a sneak peek at the new-look $100 bill on Thursday.

The open house at the Federal Reserve building in downtown Dallas was a chance to educate the public on what's different with the currency and efforts to stop counterfeiting.

Most notably, the new $100 bill has a thick blue line slightly to the right of center on the bill.

There's also a Liberty Bell in an inkwell that changes colors depending on how the bill is turned.

Experts say most counterfeiters are small-time operators trying to make a quick buck. Most like to use bleach to get rid of the ink and reprint on the paper bill.

But the new bills figure to make counterfeiting efforts more difficult than ever before.
