Fake $100 Bills Had Lincoln Watermark

PRESCOTT, Ariz., (UPI) — Police in Arizona said they were trying to identify a suspect who allegedly tried to pass two counterfeit $100 bills bearing a watermark of Abraham Lincoln.

Prescott police said the man first attempted to use a phony $100 bill about 8 p.m. July 18 at a Goodwill store. A worker noticed the security strip was incorrect and the watermark bore the image of Lincoln instead of Benjamin Franklin, The Daily Courier, Prescott, reported Monday.

Police said the man left the store before officers arrived and attempted to use a similar bill less than a half hour later at a Safeway store, where a manager noticed the flaws in the forgery.

The suspect again left before police arrived. The Safeway manager said the man left in a black, four-door passenger car.
