I didn’t say the strip. I said metallic fibers. Get out a magnifying glass and take a look for yourself. They are red and blue, by the way.

Also, the bills that do have strips have the denomination printed on them, which is what the store clerks are looking for when they hold the bill up to the light.

Watermark same as the portrait

I am not worried about this, I have never had a large amount of 50 or 100 dollar bills.

The problem is: I have gold and silver. Some in a safe at home, some in my safe deposit box. I don’t like keeping it all at home but I might not be allowed to access my safe deposit box. Do you have a solution?

The red and blue fibers are synthetic, not metallic.

Look for a private vault company in your city.

They don’t have the same legal requirements as a bank. They aren’t obligated to seal the box if one of the joint box holders dies. And, you don’t have to worry about the bank being closed by the Feds.

Of course, there is some additional risk since it is an unregulated business.

Almost correct. The new bills have an RFID signature that allows satellites to check your bank account and your income tax 1040s for cheating. And how good you are in bed.

I didn't know there was money that big. I've seen a twenty before and tens on payday but a hundred?

have you tested them? They are synthetic, but a slight doping of metallic oxide (or dye) will make then reflect RF....The real question is, do they reflect RF? I recall reading they do.
