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

me about the paper that is used to make our currency notes? I'm also
interested in the size and weight of the notes."]

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!
