Found these images in a congressional testimony from a few years ago. It's about North Korea and how super-high-quality counterfeit $100 bills known as supernotes are smuggled into the US. Don't worry: There are only several hundred million such forgeries out there in circulation, compared to nearly $1 trillion worth of Federal Reserve Notes in total. Then again, there are also the counterfeits coming from Columbia. And Peru. And Nigeria. And Italy...


Could be a lot worse, though. We could be on the euro.
