Hi,

I will attempt to answer your questions as best I can...

1)Serifs are the little horizontal lines on the top and bottom of the letter "I"  Some 1991 $20s in series EIW were printed both with and without these serifs.

2)You are correct in that the (A) is the Charlton designation for a replacement note.  They abbreviate the number ranges so that they don't have to print all the zeroes every time (ie:9.685M-9.686M means serial numbers 9685000-9686000)

3) I'm not sure if there is a sure fire way to visually tell whether a note is steel engraved except the serial number...however I have noticed that steel engraved notes have a darker colour.  

I hope this helps,
Dean.
