QUERY: SIX-POINTED STAR STAMP ON U.S. PAPER MONEY
My Mom, God bless her, gave me a card with money for my birthday Sunday. Since I turned 50, she included a $50 bill. I told her I can't wait until I'm 100. Anyway, I noticed something unusual about it. In the lower right corner of the front of the note is a small inkstamp of a six-pointed star. On closer examination, it appears to have a script letter "M" inside.
Has anyone else encountered this stamp? Any idea who made it or why? -Editor
