What is this stamp on my 50 dollar bill?

Does anyone know what "M.I.D.$" means?

I'm not sure, but the folks at Wheres George might have some ideas, if you can navigate the awful message board system there.

Just a guess: some organizations encourage people to stamp their paper money to show how much their group is contributing to the economy. It probably helps if they stamp it in a way that makes the identity of the group apparent. So much for public awareness.

It appears to be a "chop mark."

two pages of other examples can be found here.

Reminds me of the QBasic statement "MID$".
