Hey guys n gals, I have these bills with marks on them. Three of these are the same but different denominations from different places. I`m fairly sure they are post mint but they are inked somehow.The first 3 are the most curious as ive had others like them and spent them. It is not ballpoint or sharpie or anything drawn. I figured maybe ya`ll have seen these marks before. Then there`s a couple more with other ink marks also. Your expertise is greatly appreciated. Thank you

Guessing these are all remnants of teller's stamps. They detract from the value of the note.

Value isn't a concern coinfrog as these are just regular spending bills. It's just a question mostly of what are they. Especially the first 3-4 bills. It's a curiosity thing. The fourth is intriguing also. The last maybe something else though not sure. Thx though.

With Coinfrog.

Possible tellers' stamp not quite being centered on the strap when stamping. Also remember there are a lot of places that have their own stamps. This could be from some business used to bundling 1s and missing the strap they put on them (I used stamp strapped bills many moons ago with my Grandfather's business many moons ago).
It is impossible to know exactly what stamp it was, where it was done, and for what reason.

Sometimes people also find things like butterflies, frogs, beetles, anything stamped onto bills.

I also agree with the above replies.
I'm guessing the Post Mint comment is influenced by collectors of the round, shiny discs, but the correct vernacular over here is Post BEP.

Thank you steveintampa for the enlightening me on the correct vernacular. That's funny but you're right and I shall remember the correct terminology. Thx for the info. I can now give these back to the wife for her spending purposes.
