It usually is the currency symbol or asterisk that replaces the leading blanks on the numeric amount field on a check.
$********1.25 or $$$$$$$$$1.25

Hello,

A "check protection symbol" is a character (usually asterisk) that is printed after the currency sign and before the first digit of the amount on a check. The check protectino symbol is used to prevent someone from altering the amount of the check.

It is less used now that most checks that are computer generated have both the amount in digits and the amount printed below it in words.
