I just received a 2007 BTG 10.00 mismatched serial numbered Error note and noticed that the 5 mismatched numbers are in the same position that are on my 2000 FDT 10.00 Error, including the same extra black box :o! At first glance I thought that someone was trying to copy the batch of 2000 10.00 Error notes, however this is not the case as I examined the 2007 note under high magnification and found no traces of tampering. I know the odds of this exact Error are astronomical but could any Forum members be able to narrow down the odds ????http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a246/nova7415/DSCF0278_edited.jpg

To answer your question.....the 2000 10.00 was bought at a Charles Moore auction 6 years ago and the BTG note I was fortunate enough to win from an eBay seller for 460.00CAD last week. I doubt if I will ever find notes like these in any change in my life time :-\. You can view the BTG note by searching eBay # 160298835470.

I've got to hand it to you Steve ;)......I had completely forgotten about your post back in July :-[. Now I know that I'm getting old and sucumming to the "Sometimezers" :-\. What made you hold onto it so long before listing it on eBay? Had I not checked eBay that day I would never have seen your note :o.

it's also quite odd that the #'s that are same on both sides are '8' and '0', on all three notes   ??? ??? ??? ???
