Second photo should be available now
There is a green mystery seal in the back of the note.
Thanks @paddyman98 ... I didn’t look at the photo of the back of the note since the OP mentioned the treasury seal which traditionally is on the front.
If the ink is on there it's because of a transfer, not because of a bleed through,
which the green seal would be on the other side, or, because of wet notes stacked together.
I don't think this is real, because I was told in the last thread that the ink transfers
are always reversed. So that green seal on the reverse should be opposite the black seal. This one is on the same side as the green seal.
the green seal doesn't seem to be inverted on the reverse.
That's not what "reversed" means. The green seal should be directly behind the green seal on the front, just in mirror-image.
It's blurred enough that I can't tell whether the lettering is mirrored, but the key in the lower part of the shield does appear to be pointing the opposite direction. Looks like it could be a genuine offset transfer of the Treasury seal.
Too bad it's on a $100, though. The face value is greater than the value of the error, so it might be tough to find a collector willing to pay a significant premium for it.
Would the black seal also be on the reverse, or not always?
Yes the loop of the key is on the other side. (Left side on the reverse, right side on the obverse.)
