The first batch of shiny new $100 bills that we've been promised are set to go into circulation in October, more than two years late.
The new bills that show a more dapper Ben Franklin have been plagued by printing problems and production snafus; 30 million $100 bills are currently sitting in boxes waiting to be destroyed.
Now, yet another printing problem might delay the release of the bills even further.
David Wolman wrote about the $100 bill drama for the New Yorker. He's also the author of "The End of Money: Counterfeiters, Preachers, Techies, Dreamers--and the Coming Cashless Society."
