Counterfeiting Expert ‘Very Excited’ About New $10 Bills

NAPLES, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The new $10 bills are getting a stamp of approval from one counterfeiting expert.

Robert Bednar, who has worked as a document security specialist for 25 years, says the new bills, which have been splashed with red, yellow and orange, are better than the recently designed $20 and $50 bills in terms of security and design.

In his words, “This bill is definitely a lot more brilliant in design than the other denominations.”

He especially likes how the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing “gave Alexander Hamilton shoulders,” put the term “We the People” just to the right of Hamilton’s portrait and placed little yellow 10s on the back right and front left of the bill.

He says the new design and security features will make it almost impossible for crooks to counterfeit the bill when nearly 800 million of them will be put into circulation early next year.
