Found within a brick of HNP, a small group of notes with a faint dot, like a decimal point under the bottom left of the white 5.(see below).
My friend name them Journey "Double Shinplaster",   .5 dollars!  A show and tell piece.  A very interesting minor error, which I hope it isn't an omen about where our money is going. ;D ;D

Maybe this is just me, but it seems a bit desperate when people start calling stuff like this an error and expect to sell them for big bucks.  Now if we're talking about the legendary Ghost notes, or some misplaced signatures, or serial number mismatches, etc, then sure!  But a little tiny dot like this?  Please....!

I don't think that kobecurrency really meant that this is an error with any significance.

A public forum is letting others share their findings.  No matter how small of an error it is, there's always something for everyone to learn from it.  

;D

  Smile from your heart.  ;D

 Well this is not much either but the same as the $5.
The prefix is FEJ and every second note has this mark,all odd numbers.

Interesting that the error shows on only even numbered notes. Adds to the theory that sheets are numbered on 2 different machines and combined before the ream is cut. We have found a few prefixes that have been distributed in consecutive odd, consecutive even and regular consecutive order. Maybe near the end of an order only one machine is used  creating this odd number distribution. $20 EWP up to about 6million was the end of an order and were distributed in odd number runs. The new order for EW's started with new plates and a minor change in the magnetic strip which shows up on higher numbered EWP notes and onward.
Nice find. Glad you shared it with us.
