Discover IT- Holographic strip location...

Hello, all. Today I received my new It card via USPS priority mail. After opening my welcome package and taking a closer look at "it", I noticed that the holographic strip is in the upper region of the card. I was under the impression, and saw a Youtube unboxing where the holographic strip was located on the bottom of the card. Did Discover intentionally change this? If so, why? Could my card simply have been incorrectly manufactured?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Andrew

I think the early version of the card had it on the bottom.

My IT card has it on the bottom. I got it around December 2012.

EDIT: The reason why I say early because I'm assuming credittothemax recently acquired the card. And I read that people didn't really like the placement of the strip.

That is what I suspected; I wounder why they would have changed it. Perhaps it was too awkward for people to swipe the card?
