Thanks for replies. I guess that the government is going on the cheap and thinks that everyone has access to the internet for license checks.
FCC Form 660 Kirk on 3/1/15
The FCC just sent me my extra license document Form 660 and it is printed on plain bond paper. I thought FCC Form 660 was to be printed paper that had a background that includes hundreds of gray hash marks in vertical and horizontal patterns.
I just finished doing the VE application and find that in the 2014 VE Manual and on page 44 the following passage is written:

The FCC issues Amateur Radio licenses using its official license form, FCC Form 660. It includes two official licenses on an 8 1/2x11-inch document. The standard wallet-sized license, which measures approximately 2 1/4 inches tall by 6 3/4 inches wide is found at the bottom of the form. Also included is a 5x7-inch license suitable for framing and display. Both of these documents, each of which requires the licensee's signature, are legal license documents. The background in both documents includes hundreds of gray hash marks in vertical and horizontal patterns. The document has been printed on tan/off white colored stock safety paper, but FCC indicates the background color may vary depending on the color supplied by their printing contractor.

The license now looks cheap and not official.
