FORT WORTH (AP) - America’s new $100 bill will feature a color-changing ink well, a 3-D security ribbon, and more texture on Benjamin Franklin’s collar.

The new C-note that goes into circulation next month is aimed at fighting back against counterfeiters with improved printers and technology.

It still carries the image of Franklin, one of America’s Founding Fathers. But it adds part of the Declaration of Independence from Franklin’s left shoulder to the right edge of the bill. A quill and an ink well are printed behind the text, and a blue ribbon runs near the center of the bill.

The ink in the well changes colors when the bill is turned.

The new $100 bill is scheduled to enter circulation on Oct. 8 after years of delays due to production issues.
