This note will be offered on this forum after everyone gets a look. PM anytime.

Everyone has missed this very obvious difference since November. Look at the BANQUE DU CANADA to the right of the security strip NOTICE THE HIGHLIGHT just left of the front plate number. Can you see the difference between the two notes the one on the top is the regular issue and the bottom one is a variety   8)

I don't believe it either... there must be something I'm missing aside from an ink smudge that easily could have happened post-production.

I'll give you $75 for the note plus $15 for Xpresspost shipping.  The other $10 is for being out $90 while I wait for this note to be delivered.

LOOK TO THE RIGHT OF THE SECURITY STRIP. BANQUE DU CANADA HAS A BROWN INK APPLIED TO HIGHLIGHT THE WORDS. THE OTHER NOTES DON`T.

I see what you are talking about, but don't have any on hand to check up close :(

I'll come over the top of BWJM and offer $95 but only if I can see some better pictures first.  ^-^

Whatever this a good note. You guys may not be as smart as you think.

Look, we want to believe you, but every time we hear someone claiming to have something extraordinary, they never have decent pictures.  It's just so frustrating that this keeps happening in today's world where technology is cheap and everywhere.  It's just like how all the people claiming to see UFOs and Bigfoot never have a camera to record the event, and the few videos out there are of s**t quality and prove nothing.  I'm not claiming to be smart, but I know enough to ask for visual evidence, and if I don't get any, I don't put any faith in what is being claimed.  So please represent what you are claiming, otherwise it sounds like you're just trying to bait a gullible fool who will buy the note before seeing it.  We're not being unreasonable.

I know what you mean...it really ticked me off when after taking some really good pictures of Bigfoot he scooped my camera...I tried chasing him, but out of nowhere appeared a UFO that beamed him and my camera up...if only I had a backup camera maybe someone would believe me... :)

If I look to the right of the security strip, I see BANK OF CANADA, not BANQUE DU CANADA. And I don't see anything there at all in the lower photo because the glare of the flash is blocking it out.

There seems to be some confusion as to what is exactly the point of interest on these notes or at least the significance. Will someone correct me if I'm wrong but is RADARjourney not referring to the background colouring under "Bank of Canada". I've isolated the area I think is in question from one of the pictures and there is definitely a difference. I don't know if this has significance or not but I find it interesting a least and something I had certainly not noticed for sure.

I just found a $20 bill that has some difference in colour not unlike the $100 notes being discussed here.  There is a green patch next to the right serial number.  The lower note is a normal note imaged for comparison.  Ink transfers are usually responsible for "errors" like these.
