Error Banknotes

Recommended Posts

:ninja: I have been searching the forum for a link to ERROR BANKNOTES as this is a very lucrative part of the hobby. Adherents search diligently for any errors and some specialise in nothing else. I was very lucky some 40 years ago to find several error notes in a bundle of new, uncirculated ones with serial numbers in sequence handed to me by my bank. This was cash I needed to pay my staff. When I saw the errors I sold the complete set to my father, who had a coin collection, at their face value. When he died I inherited his collection and there were some other notes with errors included. I believe there would be much interest shown if a separate link was set up in the forum for comments on ERROR BANKNOTES.

Great point. I guess since only about 25% of coin collectors also collect notes, there hasn't been a big demand for an error note forum/series of threads. Thanks for the suggestion! I'd offer to help start it but I don't have the expertise or time!

Just saw this. I do have an interest in error notes. However, I have no expertise in this. While I am fascinated by more esoteric errors, e.g. mismatched serial numbers, gross misprint etc, there seems to be a huge interest in even errors like, gutter folds, uneven ink or even imperfect margins.

 

I would love to see any images or knowledge you have to share.
