always well outside the final trim area. The Mark's on the bill above certainly are not outside the trim area. They seem to be on the trim or inside the trim. While some seem to be showing trims, others, such as the horizontal mark in the upper right corner of the pic, seem to be aligned to the image. We are all glad the BEP doesn't fold bill's in half (like most users), so the mark at the top center is a bit more if a mystery to me.
Still looking for thoughts as to if these affect value for some folks. Seems like maybe just a personal choice?
I don't think any of the 32- or 50-subject notes have alignment marks between the notes on the sheet, though some of the early 32-subject notes did have marks in the outer sheet margins that could easily end up showing on a note with just a small misalignment.
In the other direction, going back to the large-size notes, some series actually had plate numbers etched between two of the notes on the sheet, so some notes will have much more going on in the margins than just a tick mark here or there. Likewise for fractionals. In those cases, a clearly readable full plate number in the margin of a note can sometimes add value, since there's only one per sheet and it often gets split between two notes when they're cut.
