Banknote Blunder $10 & $20 Hybrid Note.

If a kid got a cash gift and found a banknote with $20 and $10 then she would feel so exciting.

It maybe a misprinted note.

Our viewer in Toronto got one of this misprinted note and worried about Bank of Canada may recall his bill.

These $10 bills look like no difference.

When these bills are under the light, one will display three $20 bill security features.

It displays the Queen Elizabeth watermark, $20 holographic stripe on the front and $20 security thread on the back.

Mr. Ng got this hybrid banknote from his daughter’s red packet.

He used different money detectors to check this note and verified that it’s a genuine banknote.

It displays the $10 bill UV colourful mark and the illuminated fibers.

The printing businessman, Mr. Tse said that the banknote was misused $20 raw paper sheet to be misprinted.

Mr. Ng might sell this note for auction.

Mr. Ng worried about Bank of Canada will recall his bill. Therefore he won’t contact Bank of Canada yet.

After a phone interview from us, Bank of Canada coordinator said that they won’t recall this note.

Mr. Perreria said that these printing blunders might happen very rarely. He’ll his best to stop it occurring again.

Where can I find the plate numbers?

The front position number is on the left hand side of the note at the bottom of the white/orange strip in the white or about 1/4" if you look from the bottom up.
The back position number is on the right hand side approximately 1/2 way up the note in the lighter little purple square block.  Usually harder to see than the FP #
Hope this helps.  Sorry I don't have a scanner to show you.

Im sure that these error notes occured only on a handfull of notes. Perhaps towards the end of the BTT run and perhaps the very beginning of the BTU run. It'll be interesting to see the results.

Wow, good work.
I think one of the main things for us to realize is that even if this gets isolated to be CONTAINED within a 40,000 + 5000 ream boundary, the actual number of notes will be restricted to the actual number of incorrect sheets used. So far the evidence points to NOT all 1000 sheets of the brick being the error sheets, but rather, only a SMALL segment within the numerical range.  All of this might not matter, especially since there may only be like 5 known (I don't even know how many there are, but I know this is one huge gap in my collection!!).

WOW Rag Picker, 73 reports, bring it on. I love large quantity of numbers  :)

To everyone, your reports have been fantastic up to this point, please keep the numbers coming.

The Ottawa coin club has published the first half of my article on their website regarding the BTT & BTU notes, for those of you that do not get the CPMS newsletter,

http://www.ottawacoinclub.com/Hot_News.html

But they left out the important part that you should be cautious about paying alot of money for one of these notes if one comes your way, as the quantity available is an unknown at this time. (There is a great possibility that there are many out there).

Hudson is too smart for us, and I think his point has validity to some extend. But remember, this is just a hypothesis based on the notes that have been published in the article. The more notes that are being reported definitely helps to isolate the extent of the mess-up, and can/will lead to a more solid conclusion on what really happened.

I am planning a follow-up on the topic in the next CPMS newsletter, hopefully shedding some more light, as there may be more to this mystery then meets the eye.

In the mean time, keep the BTT & BTU #’s coming in, or if you have any question or comments, please send them my way.

ElwoodBlues is right - we truly don't know how many there are, or how they even are arranged at this time. :P It is still far to early to come up with any hard conclusions.

We simply neet to pour in the information about the BTU and BTT notes to get a more firm graps on the magnitude of the issue.

Many have been asking for more information regarding these errors. At this point there is not much to give. I will be doing a follow-up to my article in the Sept CPMS Newsletter with the available information at that time.

This is what I can share. As of today, these are the known notes that are currently outlining the range where error notes have been found.

BTT 6587734 – Low End
BTU 2640370 – High End

Thank you to everyone who has contributed their numbers thus far, but keep them coming in

It's fine to suggest that, but who is going to maintain this ever-growing list of registers? I can't remember the last time I had someone ask me if they could be a Wiki Contributor. I would like to see more volunteers before we continue to expand the amount of work.

Let's keep the numbers coming to elwoodblues...

I am not sure if an official registry is needed.
The purpose from this research at this stage is kind of to find out what the heck happened and "how" it happened.

By finding the notes on every side of the erros, it can help unravel the story.

Anyway, Elwoodblues, I have a big paper full of #s to send you.  Via snail mail.

The GPM22 catalogue lists these error notes and classifies them as BC-68a-E6-ii.

Quote
Journey $10 notes (BC-68a, prefixes BTT and BTU) have been discovered printed on paper intended for $20 notes, so they have the $20 hologram, shifting thread, and Queen Elizabeth II watermark - all elements present in the paper prior to printing. The quantity of such notes available to the hobby is not yet clear, so the value given is a cautious estimate, and may be higher or lower in future editions.

These errors are priced at $175 in Unc.
