the bills are perfect. in fact, it's how they got their name. super notes. the first one appeared in 1989. and since that time, the federal reserve says it has pulled 500,000 from circulation. still, no one knows for sure who is making them. where in the world they are. and how they got their hands on the right equipment and raw material. >> you can argue that it's easier to get your hands on nuclear materials than it is to get your hands on this bank precipitating, bank note printing equipment. >> the most important question, who brought the bills to san francisco? just how many more of them are out there undetected? and if the experts have trouble spotting the fakes, what hope do the rest of us have? >> everybody uses cash to some degree. anyone can be a victim. the victim in the case is the last person with the currency in their hand. all right, in an effort to
