The Federal Reserve has been trying to introduce a new hundred-dollar bill, but it looks like they might have to wait a tad longer. A printing error when too much ink is applied to paper, known as “mashing,” has extracted 30 million bills. These bills sit in limbo until they are attended to. This has not been the only mistake when it comes to the hundred-dollar bill; apparently, a previous printing error caused bills to have a blank spot and thieves made off with a great shipment of the new bills. These errors have put back the 2011 due date many times. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) are working at a fast pace to get these bills into circulation by the deadline date, October 8th. Sadly, taxpayers will have to pick up the tab for the disposed bills and the extra time needed to print them again.
