Funny story from my early days at one of financial corporations in NYC. I had a buddy who loved to collect money. So on his birthday one time I bought him and brought to the office an uncut 50-pieces $1 sheet that you can easily buy from BEP even up to $100s 
He loved the gift and many people were impressed you can buy them by uncut sheets. Unfortunately an HR lady was not convinced; next morning I have Secret Service (!!) at my desk with police officers ready to arrest me! Gladly they believed my story but only after I forwarded them an email receipt from BEP to prove I actually bought it from them, not printed at home myself! She never apologized to me but frankly I wasn't looking for one. Good times.
EDIT: thanks for posting Woz story, never seen it before.
Interesting fact about $2 bills (I am collector myself) - never buy them online at premiums, simply ask in bank especially before New Year where Chinese people ask for these (form of good luck) and you may get a freshly printed. BEP continues to print them and they are quite popular, but careful how you use them, you can get arrested if cops don't know they exist!

I used to wish the USA would switch to an Australian style plastic currency, but in light of recent concerns about plastics in the environment, those wishes have been tempered somewhat.
I also found it a little comical about the denied FOIA request for the profitability of the company.
The company has facilities in Tumba, Sweden as well as their new production facility in Malta.
There are some very talented engineers, scientists, designers and artists on staff there.
Hopefully Crane Co will be good stewards of what they have purchased, because Crane Currency provides an essential service for many countries around the world, but I’ll just say that I was not inspired nor impressed by the new acquirers and I hope the new ownership doesn’t drive too many more people away.
