I know that the device that prints the serial number are individual adjusted, but what about the prefix? is it possible for a missing letter?
Reason I ask is because I found a $20 Journey with one missing letter and a single digit mismatch serial.
How'd something like that happen?

I believe that both the Prefix and the Serial number wheels are individually adjusted because of the APF/APE prefix mismatched notes that were found.

Could you please provide a picture of the banknote that you found along with the BPN and FPN for the Journey notes mismatched serial number registry?

That is a very nice error note.  It has a missing prefix letter and a 1 digit mismatch.  It is a 2006 note but does not look  circulated much.  Definitely a print error.

I can see that the BPN is 33 could you please provide the FPN for the mismatched serial number registry.

So would this be an E17 error?

Yes.  Just look at all the AOZ/BPZ $5 notes in the register.
