In theory, Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) impressions as all machine impressions, should be identifiable as to their source. Exemplars from various encoding machines are examined to determine whether alignment and typeface defects occur and lead to identification of a machine from its work. The MICR E-13B character development and nomenclature are discussed.
