We use the Standard Guide to Small Size US Paper Money to determine the margins.  You can find that here: https://www.amazon.com/Standard-Guide-Small-Size-Paper-Money/dp/1440217033/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=small+size+us&qid=1603723449&s=books&sr=1-1

For this note that information would be:

1531Wi/1531Wi* = back plate is 2006 and lower
1531N/1531N* = back plate 2007-2066
1531Wii/1531Wii* = back plate 2067-2096
