Sounds Good! Yeah I couldn't find anything online so I decided to post it up for discussion. The 100's are on it in the light you can see the feather and Franklin's hair is on it feels real to me. Just never seen this on it when I got it. So when I went to get a 12 pack and cigs the babe at the counter wouldn't accept it. I am like oh are you for real? Then I was wondering if maybe it's an overlooked mint error and it's worth more than a $100.00? I told the guy who gave it to me I need to give it back to him tomorrow before I thought if it was an error.
But if it is an error? He is not getting it back! Lol
Thanks datadragon and everyone who participated in this discussion! Yeah I can't really see clearly because the ribbon is wavy like a potato chip. But yeah I can see the 100's I can see franklins hair, the gold writing, part of the feather that gets plucked going through it.
And it's woven in the three spots but it's blank where the strip "overlays"
I've collected coins in the past but never paper money. I still have some 2009 Lincoln's cents and stuff like some coin books etc. They are for my son.
But right now I'm guarding this $100 bill from everyone I live with. Because I already told them about it because 8 have a big mouth. My brother said if it's counterfeit it's a darn good one!
Hey everyone! Just checking back! Yeah I got this today in circulation. I've been doing research and nothing comes up that quite describes this type of 2009 A Series One Hundred Dollar Franklin Bill with a "Woven Blue Strip" that can be woven and unwoven if I decide to play with it.
But when I read different topics from searches about "the blue woven strip" 2009 A Series I am getting a lot of 30% of money is destroyed due to the standards and rules.
What I do know is if I decided I was going to print "counterfeit pennies" is that...
In no way can I get the dies used during the minting process to produce coins. I would have to artistically design the same die used in the US mint and engrave it is reverse to stamp the coin correctly.
I don't know everything about printing paper money... the best 8 can come up with is a scanner, printer, and glue. Which is a sure way to get caught.
This bill is real. It's gotta be! Over a hundred thousand folks on this forum and everyone is waiting for Steve! (I am too lol)
I'm about to post overseas on ebay.com and just see what happens.
Meantime I am waiting to hear from other forum member and Steve.
But yo! If this is that "09' shizzy" I'm glad I earned it today from hard work. I get the rest of the money tomorrow when I get done everything.
But we gotta be talking like a half mil?
Something like that!!!
We are talking about a circulated note that got through being destroyed and survived suffocated in wallet's and pockets! This note went through money counting machines, rode around bundled up in bags in armored trucks secured by armed protection! Into my hands when the money I had got refused and wouldn't be accepted!!!

I feel good right now! My money is working for me finally!!!!
The 3-D Security Ribbon is blue and has images of bells and 100s. When you tilt the note back and forth, the bells and 100s move from side to side. When you tilt the note from side to side, the bells and 100s move up and down. The 3-D Security Ribbon is woven into the paper, not printed on it.
Security strip errors on the new $100 note are kinda rare, but they're out there. Several past threads here at CCF feature a torn or partially missing strip. The problem with these examples is the difficulty determining if the error occurred while at the BEP, or afterwards. The blue security strip is "woven" into the paper and sometimes becomes unattached. I scoured the Heritage archives and was unable to find any similar examples. I also believe that errors like these, unfortunately fall into the "who cares" category.
