Hey all now is it just me or is the queen shifted to the left on the bottom note? If you look her ear in is the silver bar. I tried to so let me know what you think :-?

To me it looks more like the *hologram strip* is shifted to the *right*, rather than the queen being shifted to the left.  We'd have to see the whole note to know for sure.

The intaglio layer appears to be shifted to the left 1-2mm. Nice minor error. ;)

Yes, I concur (agree) with BWJM on his opinion.   The hologram strip is printed correctly.  The dark green intaglio was shifted to the left, thus Archey80 is correct about the light shadow behind the Queen.

  Smile from your heart.  ;D
