The $100 note’s security features ring true! Just as the Liberty Bell rang #OnThisDay in 1776 from Independence Hall to announce the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence, the color-shifting, Bell in the Inkwell feature of the $100 bill is one of the many signs announcing your note is genuine. 🔔 Learn more about the $100 note's security features at the U.S. Currency Education Program at https://go.usa.gov/x6tkF
