2005 Series #1 Dollars
Early Edition - No Barcodes
WOW! Hold on to your hats, because 2005 is an AMAZING year for Disney Dollar Fans!
2005 sees a complete new series of $1, $5 and $10 bills, both with and without the 'barcode experiment' (See next page)
$1 - Dumbo
$5 - Donald Duck
$10 - Stitch (From Lilo & Stitch)
THEN, a second series of $1,$5 and $10 bills (all without barcodes) AND a further release of $1 bills to mark the launch of Disney's file 'Chicken Little'
The 2005 series bills are the first ones that I'm aware of (other than the 2001 El Capitan Bills) that have added some 'anti-counterfeit' text into the design.
If you pay VERY close attention to the line that forms the top of the design of the obverse of the bill, you should notice that it is not a line at all.
In fact it is a very small printed line of text. It reads 'DISNEYDOLLARSDISNEYDOLLARSDISNEYDOLLARS.............'
From the research I have done, one website suggest that there is a humourous intentional spelling mistake in this line of text on one of the bills.
BUT, I've not found it yet!
