I don't have the note in hand and I haven't seen it with my own eyes. I told him to send me pics on a dark background and I'd ask the pros, lol. I couldn't find anything to compare this to, but still new to the paper currency thing so other than another insufficient ink error, which this looks nothing like the examples of, I don't know what to call this. It just looks like it fades away in stages. Any help identifying what happened either as an error or damage would be appreciated.
