Roller Marks on U.S. Banknotes

Remember that possible $1 Federal Reserve Note I asked about, that had that possible light security thread appearing to come down vertically, on the right side? Turns
out it was a merely a mark from a roller, when the BEP shoots those 32-note sheets through the machines at near lightning speed.
I had taken it to a couple of older currency dealers at the recent Baltimore-Whitman show. They recognized it right away.
Thanks for the update! Makes sense. I haven't noticed any of these in the wild, but I'll be on the lookout. -Editor
