After a tour through the Bureau of Engraving in Washingtong DC, they have the staple gift shop. Inside they have sheets of money (that have minor flaws and cannot be distributed)on display (under glass) that you can purchase. I put my camera right on the glass and took this shot. The display lights helped so much. This is basically right out of the camera, just a few very minor adjustments.
