I'd say that this could be a new variety, just like what occurred in the 1986 Birds $2 with the Big and Small "B"

Interesting

 What would it take to become a new variety.

It would have to take several findings to prove that it is not just one particular note.

It would have to take several findings to prove that it is not just one particular note.

Although the picture does not show it clearly I am willing to guess that this is a result of a printing mishap. There is a characteristic imprint created in this type of mishap that may result from a broken or worn letterpress number (my guess).

I have been cataloging this type of printing condition on different polymer notes. I have not found the one with EKH but I have notes with the HB_, and plenty in the AH_ and AM_. I also have seen this happening to a "4" in some of the digits. If anyone wants to compare notes on this issue I am happy to do that offline as I have cataloged this condition by position number pairs.

This is one of the things that I was going to write about for consideration in the CPMS Journal.

I have included an image of a note with prefix AMD - Notice the short stem of M.


Wonder what paper money would say if it could talk?

I have found a M/C 100 EKH 3268173 , and the K is normal. So it will be interesting to see if anyone can find notes around the EKH 3275499 # and see if the K is normal or not.
 Thanks I will follow the post.

I believe that your note EKH 3275499 is at position number 45/45.

If there is any likelihood of seeing a note with similar shortening of K it would be another note with a position number of 45/45. It does not mean that the same thing cannot happen at other position numbers.

The note EKH 3268173 is most likely at position number 44/44. I believe that is the reason why you are not seeing a short K in EKH 3268173.

If this is related to a printing mishap of the letterpress number it is likely that you will see a short K in the range of EKH 3272000 to 3279999.

It would be fun to see if someone finds a similar note to check this theory.
