Does anyone know the origin of the faces on a dollar bill when you hold it up to a light?

Perhaps you are speaking of the water marks. They are put there to keep counterfieters at bay. Normally they are the same portrait that is in ink, only actually INSIDE the paper.

If this is what you're speaking of, here's a site from the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing about the new features of the newer bills.

Just out of curiosity, were you thinking the portraits had links to the Illuminati or something?

A lot of people think US bills have Masonic symbols on them.

Yeah, I work with a guy who is all about conspiracy theory, and how the government is ruining society. That's one of his really longwinded arguments about how the world is ending or something. The Pyramid/Eye thing really gets him going.
