Has anyone seen this before? Ive had this note for about 6 years and never seen one since. It seems the ghost image has come through the paper.

Im glad that this has ignited interest in Paper Money and hope that this continues for you.

However your ghost image is basically dirt that has engrained itself into the watermark of the Queen's face within the paper.

Technically if you were to take a pencil and lightly rub it in the same location of any Journey Series Canadian bill, the corresponding watermark associated with the denomination of note you are doing this to will show up.
