I use the USPaperMoney.info site all of the time to look stuff up about small size notes, but didn't think to look there for this information on large notes. So, his site confirms that the threads are in the paper, but it doesn't shed much light on why or how they are there, which is the real mystery.

I'm sure Derek knows it, but please pass along that he has a great site, loaded with valuable and interesting information, that is widely used.

That was a good idea, Steve. It looks like all the brown seal $1 LTs and $10 SCs do have the horiz threads, like I thought. Also, certain $10 LTs that show on the charts. Here's pics of one with the large red spiked seal, Rosecrans-Huston. Unless one already knows about these lines, they'd never catch it on the photos.

Like Crazyb0 said, if these were just threads they wouldn't be so straight and might unravel, too. When I looked at them up close, I could see that they were extremely tightly woven and darker than just the plain thread. So, I guess they were applied or implanted differently than the regular loose bits.


In factor, when I look more at the chart from USPaperMoney, I see every denomination of the 1880s, from $1 to 100, with Rosecrans-Huston, has those threads.

Next step is finding out why they were implemented.
