    1st post here, my hobby is coins but today I opened a book I haven't opened in 25 years to find this. Question, is there any value (over a dollar) 20201205_143732.jpg 20201205_143707.jpg

    It looks like an offset printing error. I'd wait for @SteveInTampa to make any final determination as to the value of your note. However, it's a shame that there is a nick in the margin.

    To answer your question, Yes, it has value over face. It appears to be a complete overprint and can be worth a good premium. I would send it in for grading and encapsulation, which I believe will increase the value to a collector. They can go for well over $200 to the right buyer.


    Offset Printing or Offset Transfer
    Offset printed notes occur when an inked plate makes contact with the bed, often the cause of no sheet being fed to the press to accept the intended ink. As a result, when the next sheet passes through the press, the area impressed onto the impression cylinder is then pressed onto the opposite side of the note. Like others, this type of error can range from minor to a complete offset, with the latter being more desirable to collectors. While a rational theory, note that the errors described or pictured here are not caused by wet sheet transfer, or ink transferring from still-wet sheets to other sheets.

    The Series 1974 offset transfer above sold for $140

    Yes it has value over face as it has a offset printing error on the reverse. Unless it's a high grade bill it's not worth grading. Definitely a keeper.

    Cool error note. Looks like a full face-to-back offset error. The note does have some wear and a nick in the upper margin, but still a nice note.

    Yes, there is quite a bit of value above face for this note. The error on this note is called a full front to back wet ink transfer. It is not rare but it is collectable. Check the pricing of the sold items on eBay for what people are willing to pay.

    If you goal, is just getting the one note certified, there is no advantage to
    getting a membership, you can simply take it to someone that already has
    a membership and they can submit it on your behalf for free ! I even had
    a circumstance where the dealer didn't even charge me for shipping as
    he was already sending some notes in himself :)
