Nice, crisp looking bills and in series too. Cool.
I don't know a lot about note printing. I find it interesting that sequential notes
have different plate numbers. Also interesting to "note" that they are all cut
short on the right side. Left on reverse.
The BEP's presses use either three or four plates in rotation (one gets inked while another is printing while another is cleaned...) so a group of consecutively numbered notes will show several different plate numbers.
After the serial numbers are added to the sheets, a stack of 100 sheets is cut all at once using guillotine cutters, producing 100-note packs ready to be strapped and packaged. So if one sheet in the stack is out of alignment with the rest of the stack, you can get strap containing a single misaligned note; but if the whole stack is out of alignment with the cutters, you can get an entire strap of identically misaligned notes. Looks like the latter happened here.
Separate names with a comma.
