Ratity This note is rare as it was printed on a so-called hybrid banknote substrate
"Tyvek" which was tested by the American Bank Note Company for banknote
circulation in the early 1980s. The results of circulating the notes were not
convincing for the printing works so they returned to normal paper later and
closed the Tyvek banknote production.
