Dealer Frederick J. Bart of in Roseville, Mich, reports the discovery of an error on the recently released $100 2009A Federal Reserve Note.

In this instance, the multi-color “counter” with large numeral “100” arranged vertically at the right end of the back, to assist the visually impaired, has been offset onto the front of this particular note.

As is characteristic of an offset (compared with a printing), the numbers appear in a mirror image. Although Bart describes it as “neither visually exciting nor terribly valuable,” he believes that it is an “important finding, as so few misprints are escaping the human and computer inspectors within the BEP.”

The entire design was delayed because of pleats and folds in the upper left sheet position on the series of 2009, causing the Treasury Department to release the series of 2009A before the 2009, which were printed earlier.
