Hi..it means that it is a replacement note.When currency is  printed sometimes their are errors in the printing process.Instead of reprinting these notes they are replaced by a separate run of star notes.Star notes are also used when the serial numbers end in all zeros.These notes are never distributed.They are replaced with a star note.
