50-Subject $1 Note

$1 Note face and back with identifier information
Series: 2013

Q: How do you distinguish a 32-subject produced $1 note from a 50-subject produced $1 note?

A: The difference is the Note-Position Identifier.

$1 Alpha Numeric Note Position Identifier

Fifty-subject and 32-subject notes are distinguishable by one minor technical change. On a 50-subject produced note, the letter and number of the alpha numeric note-position identifier, is the same font size and smaller than the alpha letter of the 32-subject note. In comparison, on the 32-subject note, the number is a smaller font size compared to the letter.
