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

First thing I thought of though... was Mas Selamat rather than Monetary Authority of Singapore :bsmilie:

Ya ... I also never realized the intricacies of the printed notes until i did this. Any one of the imperfections - like the way the pen dispenses ink on the signature will show up under high magnification.

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..
