Microprinting, part 2

As promised, here’s more of the hidden images found in our bills!  Today, we’ll be looking at the $20 and $10 bills.  Here’s the 20:

Along the bottom of the bill are the words ‘THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA 20 USA’:

And hidden in the wavy ‘TWENTY USA’:

Tiny ’20 USA’s!!

Now lets look at the $10 bill:

Starting at the edges we find ‘UNITED STATES OF AMERICA TEN DOLLARS’  and some tiny 10s along the left edge:

and ‘UNITED STATES OF AMERICA TEN DOLLARS’ along the right edge:

Along the lower edge of the torch we find ‘USA 10’:

The background of both the $20 and $10 also have the cool geometric designs similar to those found on the $50 and $100!

Have you found any other examples of microprinting?  I found some on both the new and the previous version of the $5 bills, which I’ll share in a bit.  I don’t have a lot of currency from other countries, but I’m curious to see other examples of microprinting!
