Series vs year

What is the difference between a bill that was printed in 1957 and that same note also bearing a series 1957?

Paper money does not carry the date it was printed but rather the date it was first authorized. Series years followed by a letter (e.g. Series 1957A) indicates that a change of some sort occurred such as new signatures. Thus, you cannot collect a date set of Federal paper money in the sense that you could do so for, say, Lincoln cents.
