Hi everyone,

I found today a printing error on EYJ series. One must have good eyes to see it, but it's on it :) The error is in the note background. CBNC forgot to print small green lines in the security features where one can see TWENTY 20 VINGT 20. I will put a scan sooner I can.

The note serial number is EYJ8067746

BP#18
FP#53

Congratulations. I found a similar note last year where the purple litho layer on a CJ $10 was missing. See scan.

I tryed to scan it,but I do not have a good resolution. Green on Green does not look like your 10$. Do you have a trick to gett a best scan. When I try to scan bigger I see a lot of small squares...

I usually scan it at 400dpi with the "descreen" option on and a slight dose of sharpening, then in Photoshop, I reduce proportionally it to no more than 500  pixels wide. I usually save the images as 60% compressed JPEGs.
