Here a photo of an unusual error caught by one on my friends while sifting through a brick of 10$ notes.

This note (10$ with prefix BET) have the golden maple leaves on the back instead of the front. :o :o :o

There is no traces of the maples leaves on the front.

Ever have heard of this kind of error? ???

How can you tell that there are 39 more out there?

He assumed (wrongly) a sheet of 40 notes.  I think both printers are solely using 45/on or 36/on sheets at the moment.

I searched through many notes printed by BABN and found that they used the position numbers 55 through 99, it makes 45 notes/sheet, so it exists 44 other such notes.  By the serial number, you can infer approximately in which range of numbers to look at, and you know that the last three numbers are xxx055.  Good luck! ;)
