strange markings on 1929 Chicago federal reserve note

Paper Money - United States | user_32273

I recently came into possession of an old bill and I cant figure out the markings on it. I figured one of you could help! I am talking about the T and the the governors name which is blacked out

Watermarks? Interesting though... ; )

This is what I think. You do NOT have a Federal Reserve Note. It is a Federal Reserve BANK Note. This series has the title "President" marked out on all of them. I don't know what the "T" is.


Level 2

I made sure to be more specific!

I'm saw the t and the blocked signature. I'm not sure what to make of it. I don't think it was one of those pens they use to detect counterfeit though, I think that is a recent technology.

What are you seeing that is a question More facts please and we will try to help.

I don't see anything unusual, you might be looking at the watermarks or just the security features used on it the day.

I don't see anything unusual. Can you take a picture of a good twenty also? Must be what Mike B. Says.

Looks like one of those markers they used to as if the bill was counterfeit. They make a mark anywhere on the bill.it changes they know it's counterfeit.
