I'm surprised that no one has noticed a "face" in the new $20 polymer note.  It's in the exact same location as the famous "Devil's" head (just above the Queen's right ear).  If you examine the lighter areas first you can definitely recognize a chin, a grinning smile, a long curved nose, and one eye.

Any thoughts or comments on this?

I'm looking but nothing is jumping out at me.  Do I need to consume a controlled substance beforehand to be able to see this face?  8)

No, this is all on the up and up.  I showed it to a friend on the weekend, and she could spot it as well.  If you pick it out once, you'll see it every time that you look at it.

 I have tried and tried to look/turn/etc and cannot find a face in the queen's hair, maybe you should scan/highlight where you see it and post ? :(

When I was a kid my bedroom ceiling was stippled.... many times I would just stare at the ceiling and make pictures and patterns...

I think the same thing is going on here.. if you stare at something long enough a pattern or picture will eventually emerge..

I just don't think it's quite as clear as the "devils face" '54 series

I don't see a face in the Queen's hair or a scan anywhere in your post.  Coincidence?  :-D

Nope, no pictures visible.
