Hi All:

I found a Birds $20 with the position of the Queen shifted to the left by about .5 inches on the face of the note (you can see where the base of the note is left blank for the portrait), the microprinted rainbow coloured 20s that normally touch the portrait of the Queen are into her face. And on the back of the note the 20 in the top left corner is touching the left edge of the note.

Did  the paper go through the intaligo printing part twice incorrectly?

Comments?

Thanks...

John

This is an shift of the steel engraved print.  They seem to be fairly common and I have seem them sell up to $200 in unc.

It looks more like a shift of the lithograph stage of print to me.  The steel engraved part, including the long horizontal bars, seem to be quite well centered with the way the note is cut.

Since the backs of Birds notes are also lithographed, that would explain the shift of the printing on the back as well.

At a glance, I'm tempted to agree with Seth, but then Tom is quite the voice about errors, so I'm also thinking he may be right and we're wrong.
