There are three ways. First, if you hold it up to the light, you can see the Queen in the seemingly empty space shaped like an oval. Second, the dashed line, if held to the light, will become one line. And third, the relatively easy way, the hologram is hard to copy and most fake notes don't have it.

So there you go. Hope it helps!!
