    Ok everyone I have studied this bill for a while now and I am certain that the extra letters MX on the left-hand side are 100℅ under the security feature of the tiny 100's, which means it was printed before the security feature, right?

    That looks like a partial teller stamp from a bank, the yellow 100s are showing through it probably because the ink didn't adhere to them the same way it did to the paper around them.

    I suspect it is a bank marker for certain Mexico bank exchange. Jim

    And it's clearly printed on top of the security features. It's simply that the alcohol-based stamp-pad ink isn't sticking to the intaglio printed features.

    The ink in the stamp doesn’t adhere to the printed surface of the note and “appears” to be under it. I assure you it isn’t. Questions about stampings and annotations on banknotes are the leading questions from new collectors.

    It’s a Chopmark.
