The basic design of the majority of dollar bills was approved in 1928.
On the obverse portraits of dollars ... no, not just the president, but other US government officials. In addition to the 2 presidents denominations portraits of the founding fathers: the first Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton's ten dollars and scientist, journalist, diplomat Benjamin Franklin on one hundred:
12 photo. Do not break compilation.
On the other side of the banknotes are placed images illustrating the history of the United States. $ 100 is Independence Hall, located in Philadelphia - the building where the Declaration of Independence was signed:
And now increase!
Among the remarkable, that is not visible to the naked eye, the first thing I found in this micro text USA100 characters denomination in the lower left corner:
Microtext THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA tucked away on the lapel of his coat Franklin:
True the text is difficult to read, lost among other contrasting elements jacket
I should note that most of the elements have an increased thickness of the paint layer and well perceived by touch
The entire bill is dotted with colored fibers red and blue, which are clearly visible in the plain areas
All images and printing made very high quality and have clear elements of the pattern
Face in the lower right corner of the printed special shiny paint that changes color from green to black when you turn the bill
Remarkably executed portrait, clearly and contrast, as if the substrate.
Curious is the reason why the dollar has become green. In 1869, the US Treasury Department has signed a contract with Philadelphia Messers J. & M. Cox for the production of paper money with special water marks a subtle vertical stripes 5-8 cm wide. Around the same years, the Treasury was first to print dollars Using green paint. The reason for innovation - the appearance of photos: banknotes old model made of black paint, which was applied only at the edges of the green color, it was very easy to reproduce photographically. As has already been used in the manufacture of green dye, it was used in large quantities, and the selection and purchase of new proved unnecessary. In recent years, dollar bills newly acquired new colors - shades of yellow and pink.
On this, perhaps, and finish the dive in the macrocosm of one of the most popular cuts.
FSE, fasting is over.
