SECURITY THREAD

 

A security thread is a thin thread or ribbon running through a bank note substrate. All 1990 series and later notes, except the $1, include this feature. The note’s denomination is printed on the thread. In addition, the threads of the new $5, $10, $20 and $50 notes have graphics in addition to the printed denomination. The denomination number appears in the star field of the flag printed on the thread. The thread in the new notes glows when held under a long-wave ultraviolet light. In the new $5 it glows blue, in the new $10 it glows orange, in the new $20 note it glows green, in the new $50 note it glows yellow, and in the new $100 note it glows red. Since it is visible in transmitted light, but not in reflected light, the thread is difficult to copy with a color copier which uses reflected light to generate an image. Using a unique thread position for each denomination guards against certain counterfeit techniques, such as bleaching ink off a lower denomination and using the paper to "reprint" the bill as a higher value note.

The New $50.00

Credit Cards

Most credit cards have a hidden ultraviolet security feature that is only visible under the black light lamp. To authenticate, simply place the credit card front side up, under the black light lamp and look for the ultraviolet security feature (s) that appear on genuine credit cards as listed below. A distorted image alerts the merchant of a possible counterfeit card. The merchant can call the credit card issuer, thereby limiting the risk. If an image does not appear, the card may be counterfeit.
 

Security Features

American Express "AMEX" in one inch letters with a globe in the center
Visa An image of a dove in the center of the card
MasterCard Capital letters "M" and "C" on the front of the card
Discover "NOVUS" logo, newer cards have "DISCOVER"
Diners Club Capital letter "D"
 
 

Use our lights or other UV Light Methods and protect your bottom line

Checks

  1. All checks made of Secure paper such as Bank Checks will absorb the UV light. And will not glow.
  2. Bank checks may also have security markings that will only be seen under the UVlight.
  3. If checks have been washed or chemically altered they may appear lighter in color in the significant areas i.e. payee/signor and dollar amount areas.
  4. All Federal Government checks have intricate UV security features

 

 

Traveler's Checks

  1. Traveler's checks will glow if counterfeit, but will appear dull if genuine, just like currency.
  2. Traveler's checks are printed with fluorescent signature lines to protect against "washing". If areas of the check appear blue under the black light, it may have been "washed."
  3. Traveler's checks have watermarks.

 

International Currency



Most international currencies have security threads, holograms, and watermarks. To authenticate, simply place any of these items under the black light and look for the appropriate security features.
 

State Issued Driver's Licenses

The UV properties associated with the driver license will vary by State.
More than two dozen State licenses may contain some type of black light property in the laminate that will glow under black light. TO VERIFY: OBTAIN A NEW ISSUE OF YOUR STATE'S DRIVERS LICENSE AND EXAMINE UNDER THE UV SCANNER.
If hidden security features are built in they will immediately show up under the light.

 

For example, the repeated words "Texas" appears across the face of the new Texas driver license format introduced a few years ago. New Massachusetts licenses have two horizontal lines of MA MA MA MA running across the license. CALIFORNIA introduced its new license on July 6, 2001 with a hidden multi-colored fluorescent image of the State Flag. Colorado is in the process of introducing ultraviolet security features, as are other states. The following states may at present have security features: AK, AZ, CA, CT, District of Columbia, FL, HI, ID, IL, IA, KY, LA, MA, MI, MN, MO, MT, NH, NM, NY, PA, SD, TX, UT, WA, WI, WY.

 

Resident Alien/Green Cards

If authentic, depending on year of issue, either "USA" or an image of the U.S. Flag will fluoresce throughout the card when placed under the black light.

Passports

All passports have various unseen multi-colored black light fluorescent emblems and images which will be revealed by the scanner, including The U.S. Immigration Service Date Stamp. Content will differ by Country

Casino Chips

Casino chips are treated as currency in the casino environment. Many casino chips contain ID marks, which will fluoresce under black light.

Event Tickets

Most companies that issue event tickets for music, sporting and other events, implement security features to stop counterfeiters.

 

Other Items

Most U.S. Government Checks, Cashier's Checks and immigration cards have holograms and/or watermarks for verification. To authenticate, place any of these items under
the black light and look for the embedded holograms and/or watermarks that should appear in genuine instruments or documents
.
