Hi all!  I was hoping someone out there can help me figure out if a US note I have is rare and/or worth something...  I have a Series 1996 $100 bill where the security features were printed on the bill backwards.  What I mean by "printed backwards" is the watermark of Ben Franklin is upside down in the top left hand corner of the bill instead of being right side up on the lower right hand corner.  The security strip is also on the right hand side of the bill instead of left.  I know this is a genuine bill and not a counterfeit because I work for a bank and we recently sent this bill to the Secret Service to verify the validity of the note.  And sure enough the Secret Service sent the bill back to the bank stating it is a genuine note....so of course I had to buy the note from the bank ASAP.  I have worked in the banking industry closely with money for 6 six years and never I have seen anything like the secuirty features being printed backwards.  Anyway if you can't tell I'm pretty excited to have obtained this bill even if it isn't very rare or worth anything more then a 100 bucks!!!!  Smile 
 
I'm just curious what I have my hands on... So anyone out there have any idea if this rare and/or worth more then face value?
 
Thanks for you time!!

Without a scan no one can really tell what you have.  I always suggest that people have currency and coins examined if they think that they have something unusual.
May God bless and prosper you in all that you do in His name,

I'd love to see an image of the note!

Hi,
 
How about a coin show, you'll be able to meet up with more dealers, some may actually
deal in paper money. Seems like most dealers I run into work mainly with coins.
 
Another options would be a local dealer.
