So a while back I bought 2 100 dollar bills (big face) on eBay and when they arrived I desided to hold them up to light. One of two I was expecting but the other one Ben looked like a washed up ghost. I don't know how to explain it so you guys can be the judge. I am not saying it's counterfeit I am just saying it's strange.
The one on top is the one I am talking about

Welcome to CCF Adrian.

Watermarks will differ slightly from note to note.

Fourdrinier watermark
This watermark is produced by ‘flat’ technology machines during the making of paper, the contrasts in the hues are created by the different thicknesses of the fibres in the pulp mixture. As compared to a mould-made watermark, the hue contrasts are less rich and evident, however it still remains one of the most widespread and effective means against counterfeiting of value security paper.
