lols...

If you think this is bad.. you should look over across the border....there are scammers out there that buy uncut STAR (replacement note) sheets and cut the notes in the middle (so that part of top and bottom notes are showing) and then they resell them as "errors"

You cant exactly make an error with the proper dimensions from a uncut sheet of two notes. Cutting an uncut sheet of $2 is far more difficult (relatively speaking) when compared to cutting those 4 Note uncut sheets that the BEP sells to the public.

Notes like the above are being sold for $80-100+ on you know where. Members of the US forum Im on were able to back trace the notes, he sold as errors, to the uncut 4 note sheets that they were cut from.

But why are they wasting a sheet of bills that certainly cost like 200$ to sell a 80$ bill?

US BEP Uncut 4 note star sheets go for about $100 or so. You can make maybe 3 'errors' from one sheet.

Ok. And can you see that the error is fake?

If you send this note to PMG, will they discover the thruth?

Yes because US Uncut Star (Replacement notes) fall under specific ranges. Some ranges are also "Sheet-Only" ranges.
