(Blue Seals) Any Friedberg numbers with an A indicate a note with plate style b. This plate style, on the face, uses large size notations for the Federal Reserve district in the upper right and lower left corners.

(Red Seals) Any Friedberg numbers with an A indicate a note with plate style a. This plate style only has notations for the Federal Reserve district in the upper right and lower left corners. These are large sized.

(Red Seals) Any Friedberg numbers with a B indicate a note with plate style b. This plate style has notations in all 4 corners for the Federal Reserve district. The upper right and lower left corners are large size notations. The upper left and lower right are small size.
