Ok, now I'm paranoid

New $50 bill can't be saved, scanned, or printed.

The thing is, I believe that I usually have a pretty good idea of what's technologically possible, and I can't imagine how such a thing could be done. Has anyone actually tried scanning a $50 bill?

I can imagine ways around such a limitation (scan the bill in small sections, make a slightly blurry scan, use a scanner that wasn't made in the US....), but maybe I'm missing something.

I bet that the low-res image would be good enough to spend in a harried ill-lit environment like a bar.
