Good Luck!

Starting in 1990, instead of a band of silk, the paper manufacturer wove in a polymer thread about 1.5 millimeters wide, printed with the bill’s denomination and “USA.” This security thread is visible only when light shines through the note, and it glows a distinctive color under ultraviolet illumination.
