I am just curious if anyone knows how many of these errors have now been found.
My suggestion of a registry was squashed so I really don't know  :(

I believe an article will be contributed for the Sept. issue of the CPMS Newsletter which will include the information you (and all of us) want.

My suggestion of a registry was squashed so I really don't know  :(

A register for these notes -- at this time -- would not make a whole lot of sense due to the nature of the error and the way notes are printed. They are not in a contiguous run of notes, but rather in several distinct runs of sheets. If you have one sheet of errors, that represents 45 distinct notes with numbers separated by 1000 or even more depending on where on the sheet the note is. Meanwhile, the adjacent sheets are normal, so you've got 45 error notes separated by 1000, with all shoulder notes being normal.

Right now, research is being conducted on this issue. Vast amounts of data are being collected to assist in this project. Not only is data on error notes being collected, but ALL BTT and BTU notes. You can see how a register would be thoroughly useless at this point as it would contain so much information. Restricting it to known error notes is also useless for any kind of research.

What I can say at this point is that there should be hundreds of these errors in circulation. Several have been found. While I do not know the exact number of known notes, I estimate it to be approximately two dozen.

Collectors should be advised not to spend vast amounts of money to acquire such notes. Resist the current hype and wait for things to settle down. We saw the same sort of thing with BEL and BER-2003 notes and I expect that is what will happen here too: a huge price bubble for the first bit, and then suddenly the prices fall back down to more realistic ranges once more notes emerge from the woodwork.

Do you mean a registry of known notes would be only for research and not to provide  members current up to date  information ?

That's not at all what I mean. I meant what I said. Restricting the register to only the known error notes (ie: excluding all non-error notes) would be useless for research purposes.

Either way, there is no public listing of known BTT/BTU error notes. Research is currently being conducted, and as Bob said above, there is an article on this subject anticipated for the September CPMS Newsletter. You will find more information when the newsletter is released (and no, I am not the author of said article, nor will I be publishing anything on the subject in the foreseeable future).

Be nice to see a reprint of this article on the forum for those non CPMS members who are interested and or contributed to this project......this error has garnered a fair bit of interest even for those who don't collect errors....

That's awesome. I found 10K in my closet this weekend and didn't know what to do with it until now!!! Those notes are mine!!!  ;D

MG
I assume once you bid 10K he will relist the notes for 15k....better start looking in other closets ;D

I have merged all of the discussion posts on these errors into this thread. The original thread in the "Canadian Journey Series" forum is ONLY for posting new numbers of notes that you have found. All discussion should be carried out here. Thanks!
