Hello firsttimeuser, According to the U.S. Treasury: "All denominations of paper currency notes printed since 1929 are the same size, measuring approximately 2.61 inches (6.63 centimeters) by 6.14 inches (15.60 centimeters). Each note is 0.0043 inches thick ...." "FAQs: Currency -- Production & Circulation" [under "What can you tell me about the paper that is used to make our currency notes? I'm also interested in the size and weight of the notes."] United States Department of the Treasury http://www.treas.gov/education/faq/currency/production.shtml - justaskscott Search strategy -- Searched on Google for: currency inches site:gov

Thanks for the quick answer. That is interesting. I got paid a $100 bill and it is slightly smaller than the the 2.61 inches, more like 2.59. I was irritated because I compared it to a $1 bill which was 2.7 inches high. I checked all security features and my bill it is not a counterfeit, so they definitely MEAN "approximately" Thanks for your time!
