Well, I know I've lived in the sticks too long, but just noticed today when I held up a $5 bill to the light that there is another person's picture on it. As you look at Lincoln, the other pic is on the right hand side of the bill. So, who is it? NMSight

it's Lincoln.. same picture as the one in the center, it's a "watermark" image to help prevent counterfeiting. No_Expert

I never noticed that before either, but that's Lincoln too. It's a watermark, so it doesn't look as good as the other pic. They did the same thing on the twenty. I don't have a ten to look at, but I bet it's there, too.

This bill is in pretty good shape which is why I was looking at it when I joked to my wife that someone probably just took it off the line and pressed it. Anyway, it sure looks like a guy w/mustache and no beard to me. Maybe I better stop off at the bank tomorrow and check it out before I try to spend it somewhere. NMSight

LMAO, you guys..all the new bills have water marks like that, there's also plastic trip imbedded into the bill with the face amount printed on it. Also some where in the main portrait, there is micro printing that says "The United States of America." This is so small that if you put the bill in a copy machine and copied it, it would look like a black line. Abe has it to the left and right of his name. Hamilton is just above his name. Jackson is kinda like Abe's on either side of his name. Grant is tricky. His is on his collar. I don't hav any Benjamins with me so I can't tell you exactly where his is. Also on the 10's 20's 50's and 100's the bottom right number, if you twist the bill, it chages colors from green to black. There are still the colored fibers imbedded into the bill, and if you run your finger on their collars you will feel they are textured, not just flat. These are the ones off the top of my head. If I remember anymore I'll post them for you. Can you tell I used to work for a bank? [;)]

It's Baron Rothschild, from the Trilateral Commission (Illuminati)...

Real money doesn't burn either. Try lighting one of your bills with a cigarette lighter. If the new bills burn they are fakes.[:)] Michael
