$10 1999 Federal Reserve Note
Star notes are replacements for notes that were damaged or misprinted during the printing process. The damaged note would be destroyed, and a new note would be printed to maintain an accurate count. Until 1910, the replacement note would have the exact serial number (including block letters) as the one destroyed. The BEP quickly realized this was too time consuming and began to print a small quantity of star notes in advance of the regular issues. Once the inspectors located a defective note, the replacement (star) note would be inserted. In most cases, the star note would not have an identical serial number as the one it replaced.
This note has deep embossing and dark inks that make the portrait of President Andrew Jackson pop right out of the note.
