Series 2017 $20 FRN "marked"

Paper Money-U.S. | AC coin$

US $20 FRN Series 2017 # NF 31750353 A
As we try to become more aware of the markings and unusual features in our currency we certainly can find many oddities looking closer.

Some items in US circulated paper-money might present markings or "tiny" symbols stamped at any correr or nearby lettering or numbering for each bill. These markings, tiny drawings or ink stamped symbols are often seen in pale colors and intense hues as well.

Interest and attraction towards notes with this sort of feature are now part of the specific search items for many eager collectors nationwide and everywhere. Some US bills are sold at high prizes according to their proceedings or due to the mystery attached to the symbol found in them.


My collected bill brings a tiny stamped pale purple star on its obverse and a small stamped pale purple "bull" on its reverse. Such features makes the item unique and well sought. Enjoy my blog and please comment bellow.

In my own words.

For further details about this item and others please visit my collections section.

As far as the pale purple bull controversy, I think it adds a bit of interest and mystery to the bill. We have such examples in coins... I'm thinking of Trade dollars with chop marks and specifically of the Stone Mountain Commemorative where some examples have counterstamps that add to the value. I don't guess a pale purple bull wouldn't add to the value but it is interesting.

I think maybe some kid just stamped that bill for fun... I doubt the Treasury would stamp little animals and stars on the notes??? I guess I could be wrong??? Can you tell me where you found this information. Thanks! ; )

It is the first time I use this bill and the first time I write about specific markings, this time tiny stamps on each side. My collection is huge and still expanding, chances are you might be confused with so many others launched before.

I think you may be incorrect on this one. This looks like PMD to me. Some person with a new little ink pad. I could be wrong. Show me where you found this fact in your bibliography please. I would like to see it.

Nope. I'm only talking about this one bill. No other bill and no other site posting. I'm just asking where you got your info on this kind of stamping. I'm not challenging you in any way. Simple question. Where can I read about tiny stampings like the one you have. NOT calling you a liar or anything else. Telling someone to check you tube is almost as bad as Wikipedia. Those places are generally full of poop. You have the bill in hand. I don't. Where did you get your info on these stamps? Thanks Pal. No big deal. As a collector of MPC I see all kinds of marks and drawings on bills. Makes them worth more to me.

My collection is huge and still expanding, chances are you might be confused with so many others launched before. You should visit more often websites marketing items like this one shown, for example, YouTube has a myriad of topics dealing with markings and oddities in paper-money and others. There's even an individual who has done research on this type of tiny markings and other drawings on bills, check google.
