    Mismatched Serial numbers is just that. Serial Numbers on a note that don't match.

    Here is an interesting story in CoinWeek about a woman claiming she was at the FUN show recently and had received a $20.00 bill as change after a purchase. She noticed it was a Mismatched Serial number and then took it to the PMG table to have it authenticated. I don't know about the legitimacy of the story but it was a great find.

    And they do carry a pretty good high premium. Upwards of hundreds of dollars! :greedy:

    Cool story, thanks for sharing.
    What makes it even more unusual is finding a mismatched serial number on a fairly modern note. Mismatched serial numbers were more prevalent in the 60’s through the 90’s and have almost disappeared since then. They make you do a double-take when first viewed. You could easily miss it. Some of my errors.

    Interesting, my first guess would have been a counterfeit.

    A mismatched serial number is one I don't have, except in a CSA note and I don't have a photo of it.
