Title: $20 bird series prefix error
Post by: Cbeaulieu on January 11, 2005, 12:23:34 am
Hi collectors  :o,
                  It's a mismatched prefix error(At the right side it's AYG and left side it's AZG a 2004 prefix)A person I know offer me this error in AU condition.It was found in a bank machine.I realy checked it with powerfull magnifying-glass and nothigs was wrong after I talk to a other collector(Gilles Pomerleau) and he told me to check under ultraviolet(UV) light to seew around the letters if the paper have a different reflection because if someone used a chimical product it easy to seew it with UV light and magnifying-glass I did the same things with a other 20$ with the same prefix(AYG)and the both banknote have the same result!After many examination I concluded it's a real error.Have a good collecting year.Thank you.

Thats an amazing error! Whats so cool about the error is that the AYG is a correct prefix of the birds series, but AZG... this is what appears in the journey series. Whats makes it hard to believe is how that Z ever ended up on the birds note to begin with. One must wonder how many of these notes were printed like that

This would make a nice addition to the Online Canadian Paper Money Museum.  Would you consider submitting it and perhaps any other spectacular errors you might have?  You can email me for more information.
