Specimen = sample

Specimen notes are banknotes, printed for the purpose of testing, for various details
and to be presented to the approval authority, before actual printing.
Generally, the international system, prefer to punch the word Specimen (also in Thai version ตัวอย่าง) on the banknotes,
useing red stamps wording SPECIMEN (sample) and printed with 000000, instead of alphabetical codes
and serial numbers.
