Since 1992 1 Dollar Federal Reserve Notes are partly made on roller printing machines. Such notes slightly differ from the banknotes, made by traditional method:

Intaglio:

Light-colored parts of the lathwork on the face and on the back contain black or dark-green small stretched pointed elements (3.1, 4.1). As similar repeating fragments form most of the lathwork, practically the same elements may be found in other places: on the face - in lower part of the frame, on the back - in side parts. In banknotes made on roller machines, such small details either are not printed or printed with poorer quality (3.2, 4.2).

In counterfeits, these small elements have rounded tips, uneven contours, different forms and disposition.

Security fibers:

The paper contains imbedded in a chaotic manner red and blue security fibers.

Magnetic security:

The black ink used for intaglio printing on the face contains ferro-magnetic component.

Paper: light yellow, with security fibers.

Printing methods: intaglio:

On the face — all pictures, except serial numbers, U.S. Treasury Seal, Federal Reserve Bank Seal and index numbers;

On the back — all pictures;

Letterpress:

On the face — serial numbers, U.S. Treasury Seal, Seal and 4 index numbers of the Federal Reserve Bank.
