I slammed the first book I found on my shelf this morning onto a scanner. I hadn't had coffee so it is squinty. Enjoy it.
Also attached links to microscope blogs/manufacturers which do the similar examples. Often you will find examples focus in on the left side of the note. I imagine this is because we read left to right, and just choose the largest piece of image or symbolism from around that area.
There are also many forensic examples from processing moire patterns and finger prints. The below is from a visual effects book, however.

Side note: I flipped through some of my forensics books and they tend to focus on the edges of the bank notes but this is because that's generally where finger prints are. Very few people grab a bank note in the centre.

Thank you for taking the time to scan and show me unfortunately it does not confirm that they like to use the erea of the note to show how good the photography is.
You say this is from a book about forensics and looking for finger prints ?
It would make sence to take a pic of the note because it's in context with finger printing.
As I said before I can think I've many other items they could have used that we're in context with the mission.
Don't get my wrong your theory on why they used the bill was good and has me searching the net looking for exemples you used earlier.
And thanks again for putting in the effort. But for now I'm still not so sure.
