    I don't have any, but I had to work the concessions at my high school's football game this weekend, and a guy showed me a new 20. He was going to pay with it, but then said "Oh, I wanna keep this one, take a look." The coloring isn't very noticeable, it doesn't look that wierd.

    I saw some of it last year at the local federal reserve. Looks just like in the pictures, and I think it is actually pretty kool. Kinda neat to have real "play" money.

    we had a couple come through at work last night. the different colors look kinda weird, and there are some strange new designs on the back, like lots of little twentys. i had heard that you couldnt rip the new ones, but i didnt have any problems with that.

    up here in canada we've had colored mony for a long time. I linke it cuz it easy to tell bills apart when you glanse at them. but some of our newer bills look alot like play money, the new us20 still looks real enough.

    Well, you have to look at it this way. The reason why the american 'greenback' was so popular, was due to the ease of making fake money. Sure, the new strips, the watermarks, etc helped but it was still too easy. I'm sure this will help deter some of the counterfitting but it won't derail it.

    I liked how the Euro is set up. Not only is it colored, the bill size gets smaller as the bill gets smaller.. Easy to sort your money!

    I was wondering how long it would take the US to make their money colored.... every were else it's been done along time ago. The US has for a long time now held the easiest money to counterfit... I hope this solves that..
