Full Answer

The Federal Reserve Bank Service notes that when securing a bundle it is important to make sure that the straps are held tightly but not so tightly that it damages the notes. Each strap must be secured with a band that identifies the denomination of the notes and the total value of the notes. For instance, a $1 band will identify the denomination ($1) and the total value of the strap, $100.
