Pricey Mess Up
Due to printing error, $110,000,000,000 must be sorted and flawed bills destroyed. All of the currency was comprised of 100 dollar bills, making it truly all about the Benjamin’s.
A snag in the printing process left up to 30% of the notes with a blank patch on the face, US network CNBC reported.
Officials are working to devise a mechanical process to sort the flawed bills. Doing so by hand would take up to 30 years, officials said.
