Jamaica new 100-dollar Hybrid note (B250a) confirmed


These notes are like the preceding regular issue notes on paper substrate, but now printed on Hybrid substrate, and the serial number at right appears in a wave pattern with the last three digits set against a dark background using LOOK (Laser Originated Optical Key), G&D’s security feature that creates laser-induced effects in the substrate, print color, foil, and varnish.
