A&D Coin has been buying error notes and currencies for a long time.
Down this page are some of the coolest types of currency mistakes out there (and, some not so cool).
Not all currency errors are collectible
Not all currency errors have value
Not all currency errors are desirable
As with anything collectible, condition really matters.
THE LESS PERFECT IT IS, THE LESS IT’S VALUE.
If your bill has tears, stains, folds, creases or wrinkles… Pin holes, written on or has a corners missing; chances are, it’s probably not worth much (if anything) over face value.
PMG (Paper Money Grading), is one of the worlds leading currency grading companies. On their website, they have the currency grading scale you can view.
Once condition is established, now it’s time to substantiate it’s value and see what (if any) demand there is for such item.
eBay is a great place for this kind of research. You can see if there are any recent sales (like-for-like) and at what price it sold for. This will give you an idea of what the market is willing to pay. Here’s a quick video showing how to do this (from a desktop or using eBays mobile app).
There are either
1. Good examples or poor examples
2. Major errors or minor errors
The desire of an error note or a dealers’ interest in buying one will be for the major errors that are in great condition (examples below).
That’s not to say you can’t find a buyer for minor errors or those in poor condition, but eBay will be your best place for that.
If you have a bill, and it looks dingy, torn and tattered, spend it! It doesn’t matter what the error is, condition and eye appeal is everything.
If You Have a GOOD Example of Something… Let’s Talk!
Below are some currency errors we have interest in.
missing serial numbers
misaligned / misalignment
ink smear / smudge error

If you have any of the above and in GREAT shape…
US Error Notes We Buy
Sell Paper Money With Mistakes
Other than the list above, if you want to sell paper money that has a mistake of some kind, take a look down the page at some of the notable types of error notes collectors and dealers like us are interested in.
Types of Paper Money Errors
These types of error notes refer to a shift of only the seals & numbers like in this example.
And depending on condition, the more extreme, the more valuable & desirable by collectors.
Major Misalignment Error (off-center)
This is when two notes are mis-cut and end up in the same frame with of the all seals and numbers shifted.
These are extraordinary and in high grades, can sell for $2,000 and up.
Minor Off Center
These types of error notes are quite common and minor compared to the above. We ourselves would not be interested in these type but they do sell on eBay for 2 to 5 times face value. Sometimes more (on a good day)
Serial number digits get stuck during the printing process which leads to partially turned digits.
Spend It or Try eBay
One of the three steps in the printing process got missed and therefore results in black seal or green seal and/or serial numbers completely missing.
Spend It or Try eBay
Gutter Fold Errors
Gutter folds are quite common but still quite collectible. They are the result of the uncut sheets being sent through the press with a wrinkle in the paper. Also known as bank crease.
Gutter folds that are on the back of the bill are much less desirable by collectors and therefore much less valuable.
MINOR BUT GOOD
MAJOR BUT POOR
Missing First Print (Blank Error Note)
(blank reverse) A blank back error note is one where the printing on the reverse side of the note is missing.
Fold Over Printing Error
These often affect the corners and can lead to misprinting serial numbers and parts being blank and or printed on the reverse.
MAJOR & GOOD EXAMPLE
Other Mistake Currency
Inverted Money Errors
This is when the front and back of the note are in opposite directions.
Also a common currency error. This happens when the printing of the note doesn’t align with the note’s other steps in the printing process.
Offset Currency Errors
A quite common printing error that happens when wet sheets touch each other leaving imprints of other notes on them.
These are very noticeable errors that usually occur in the black printed portions of the note and highly noticeable. Light inking would be the opposite. Neither carry high premiums but some collectors like them just the same.
Ink Smear Errors
(smudge) This is when the ink smears and is passed from the press onto a note.
Bill With Mismatched Serial Numbers
Very rare and in high grades can be quite valuable. A bill will have two different serial numbers on it.
Serial numbers and/or seal is generally missing, upside down or out of order.
