Mis-printed £20 note


Recommended Posts

I have recently obtained a mis-printed £20 pound uncirculated note and was wondering whats your opinion. It is definitely not a fake as it has all the security features and has been confirmed by my local bank. So if any of you have any information about this note it would be greatly appreciated, especially a valuation. Here is a picture

This missed a last printing. The value is definately enhanced by the fact that HRH is quite noticeably absent from the note. I see similar but maybe a bit less dramatic errors with Scottish, usually Bank of Scotland notes from time to time going for about £200 or so. I have a feeling this is a bit pricier, it is English, and is quite a dramatic error.

just scanning e-bay, most prices hover around the $50 range for missing printings. here are just a few examples:

 

indonesia $51.95

brazil $50.00

and a totally made-up price on this next one-

malaysia $333

england might fetch a little more since their notes are more sought after, especially for this "high value" note with a $35.00 face value. i might have found a similar note for sale here:

nope, her error is a different type. i suggest sending the scan to various british note dealers to get their opinion. and post back here to let us know what they say!
