I finally got few notes and I checked for the famous holographic image in the maple leaf window, and I finally saw the image.  True that the image shows best with a pinpoint source of light (the more pinpoint light is, clearer is the image).  For those who are presbytics, it could be difficult to see the image.  A spreaded source of light will only smears the image...

I tried to project this hidden image by pointing a red lazer pointer through the image on a white paper and we can see clearly (when properly aligned) the hidden image.  The picture here shows how what it look:

Visually, the image is better than that...Sorry...

I also checked for UV inks, and indeed, with a 13 watts compact black light (available in most of hardware store), I saw a feebly orange fluorescent square at the back on the image of the microscope.  Someone has reported seeing a trace of this square on ordinary light (having not the same finish as the rest of the note)


Here an image of this square.

It's much as on the previous serie.  This square was (and still is) visible on all denominations and is always on the same area, regardless the denomination...

Maybe it's one of the "secret" security features?...
