A brand-new $100 bill has finally been upgraded and set to circulate Oct. 8. The fancy new note, which was designed in part to help people check for fakes and changes from copper to green, will include a color-changing ink well, 3-D security ribbon, and more texture on Benjamin Franklin's collar. "We try and find security features that can be used at a number of different levels, from more experienced cash handlers ... down to the person on the street who really needs to know the security features so they can protect themselves," Michael Lambert, a deputy associate director at the Federal Reserve, said.
