50-krone note – non-upgraded (1996-2002)
The security thread in the non-upgraded note can be seen as a dark thread when the note is held up to the light. The thread is thinner than the security thread on the upgraded note and there is no text. There are no yellow circles next to the ring of willow twine on the left-hand side of the obverse, i.e. the side of the note bearing the portrait of Peter Christen Asbjørnsen.
