    "Federal Reserve Note" is the nomenclature.

    Re: federal diploma

    I would have absolutely no idea what the person meant by that.

    Often, the non-standard expressions people ask about, which are really single-use creations that are plays on words, are understandable.

    The one is not.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: federal diploma

    Hi everyone,

    I would understand it (even given the lack of context) as an ironic or humorous expression between two speakers who understand it to be so.

    Greetings,
