    Wow, never realised there was quite so much detail in the notes. Really opened my eyes.

    I see you have the same idea too...

    I shot the $10 note previously too... at higher magnification.

    Won't post them here. You can see them in the link.

    those details are known as security features to prevent counterfeiting...

    look at any government issued document/pass and you will see more..
