The center $20 note (2009) is bogus. My brother found it and sent it to me. It's in a holder, marked COUNTERFEIT for my heirs. All alone it feels suspicious, but when grouped together, intermingled with legitimate $20's, it could easily be overlooked.

Is your counterfeit 20$ on bogus paper or genuine paper?

The paper used is a thicker bond type paper, but lacks the intaglio feel genuine notes possess. Once again, if presented by itself, an experienced money handler would probably be suspicious, but if mingled with other notes, it might get overlooked.

It does seem washed-out compared to the other two, but it sure looks good to the eye. I'd love to actually feel it.

Hello! Our business recently received a $100 bill we thought was fake. The customer basically fled when confronted, so we were convinced. To learn more about these bills, we google them to see if there were any security features we should look for on the older bills. Imagine our surprise when this image from this thread showed up with the identical serial number and stamps on the back. I wonder if they downloaded this image or is this just a common one used by them. We are located in Florida.

Strange in that it sure looks like the exact note in the original post all the way down to the purple characters on the back.

The only differences I see is the void area in the portrait at 3 o'clock on the original vs no void area at 3 o'clock on the new note.

Interesting counterfeits.

Googled the serial number and found this, from July in North Carolina: https://lincolnherald.net/main.asp?...icleID=30778

One noteworthy feature of the counterfeit bills according to Detective Rick Humphries of the Shelby Police Dept. is a blue circle that appears to have been stamped on the back of the bills. The bills passed in Shelby both had the same serial number: B41684290C.

There's a lot of that one going around.
