Seems that the note/sheet was fed upside down.  As a result, the hologram strip printed on the right hand side of the note with the hologram 20s upside down.  Interesting indeed.  

  Smile from your heart.  ;D

I wonder how Chalrton is going to price this error type.  Probably in the same category as the misplaced OSD on the Birds notes - but this error is more dramatic and the holograph is not only misplaced, it is upside down.

That's a beauty and should book more than the misplaced OSD which are somewhat suspicious in the first place. That error is dramatic and couldn't possibly be contrived. Good find Arthur!

In that condition it would be closer to 1/10th of the starting bid. Still an amazing note.

Wow what a turn off! ::) They must not be too serious about selling...and are only phishing....

Even $750 seems steep considering its condition-- esp in light of the fact that you can get a decent 75% offset printing error on an UNC (which is a much more dramatic error) for around $500 - $700.

Considering the grade it looks like it unknowinly passed through a number of hands already. The mystery is more how could anyone miss such an obvious error?

Tons of people... If they were to get this note, they would just treet it like any other 20 dollar bill and go buy a coffee or lotto ticket.

You got a point there. But I don't know very many legally blind coffee addicted gamblers.  ;)

Most non collectors would spend an error like this thinking that it may be a counterfit.

A very dramatic error indeed.  Where are the other notes from the sheet that should exhibit the same error?

Well they very well could have been circulated. They could have been removed by the printers or by a bank/bank teller. With errors it is difficult to know how many potentially exist.

We can be optimistic and say there is about 39 more floating around out there. Say, where was this one found? I feel like getting a cup of coffee.

Don't forget the lotto ticket.  ;)

Am guessing this note was found in Ont as the sellers location is Ont Canada.

Potential for 44 more. (Sheet of 45).  Since sometimes even CBN removes single notes every now and then, the 44 others is a MAXIMUM.  This Could be the only one. :o  ( but I doubt it)

I think I may have better luck winning the lotto than finding one of it's lost brothers and sisters out here in BC. :D Mmm... a delicious cup of coffee...sigh...

Well... I don't know about loving him?  I think I'd prefer to give him "D" for Dreamer... and when he gets his eBay bill give him D for d_ _ _

Go to Hudson's new thread under General Comments: "specialty numbers" where he provides a link to Executive Currency.  Under their "ERRORS" link they write:  many would expect an error to cost a king's ransom.  This seller obviously does.

And yet I would agree that errors are more unique than given credit for: probably worth more than they're selling for too.  But that kind of asking price would just spook anyone who might be interested in acquiring a few (unless they were a prince who can afford a king's ransom!)
