Signature Combinations on U.S. Currency
The series date on the face of a note signifies the year the design of a particular note originated, or when a major revision was made to the note design. Inorder to more closely determine when a particular note was printed, compare the signature combination on the note to the signers terms of office. As an example, take a FR#88 1907 series $5 US Note with a Teehee/Burke signature combination. Looking in the following table, you will see that Houston B. Teehee and John Burke held office between 03-24-1915 and 11-20-1919, which means our example most likely would have been printed during this timeframe.
