This month’s video is “How to Detect A Counterfeit, Part II.” The 12-minute video shows consumers how to recognize the watermark, security thread, color-shifting ink, raised printing, and microprinting security features on the new note. The video includes a demonstration by Kelley Harris of the United States Secret Service, head of the Washington, DC counterfeit lab. Harris also shows examples of counterfeit attempts. Interestingly, she talks about the small letters and numbers located on the notes that show the plate and position codes of the notes.

Yesterday’s release announcement was for the third video podcast of the BEP’s $100 Note Podcast series. Rather than read the release, I used the information from other sources. Sorry! The new video is “The Art of the Banknote Design.” The video features Larry Felix, Director of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, and Michael Lambert, Assistant Director of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. Felix and Lambert discusses the thoughts behind the creating of the new $100 Federal Reserve Note.
