    Yes, because one star is solid, the other isn't. Its a minor error note

    Yes, what Ted said. Solid star error. My example. I believe I paid $75 for mine.

    Thanks for the education!
    Yesterday at the bank I asked the teller if she had any $2 bills. She pulled out a crisp stack of 50 sequential Star notes. After learning about Solid Star notes I checked my stack of 50 and found several.
