Wondering if anyone has ever seen this type of error being security numbers skipping up a note?  The attached photo shows the security window on my Wilkens/Polze $20 FYT6337088.  The double threes can be seen twice in security window, directly above their positioning in the serial number.

Any ideas on the value of a note like this.  Uncirculated condition.

Cheers Bill

Although it is abnormal, in my opinion it is not significant enough to be collectable.  Others may have varying opinions of course.

Thank you!  It was so hard to find, I think I'll put it in my "keeper" pile for now.
