If you are planning on taking dollars to exchange go to your bank and get the newest, least circulated notes they will give you. Worn, torn bills, or even ones of a prior design will often be refused.

In recent years Iran has been printing tons of fake US currency and many Europeans have already been victimized. $50 bills are more likely to be accepted than $100's because they are less often counterfeited.
