Item number:310689323958 on the auction website we all have come to know.

Nice close-up photos

Wonder what paper money would say if it could talk?

I would STRONGLY encourage all members to seriously consider the ease at which serial numbers and other printing can be removed from a polymer banknote.  I personally would not buy a note like this for much over face value.

Buyer beware!

Yes I saw this when it was first posted, I was tempted however.....anyone find it abit odd that there happens to be two creases going across the "error"

For this time being ill pass... the "What you see is EXACTLY what you get" comment is throwing up some red flags in my mind.

Caveat emptor

Here's a proof of concept that I did in less than 5 minutes.
