ERROR NOTES & MISPRINT CURRENCY
Misprinted Money Buyers
A&D Coin has been buying error notes and currencies for a long time. Error notes are some of the coolest types of currency mistakes out there. But as with any collectible (especially currency), condition really matters.
The less perfect it is, the lower the value. If it has any tears, stains, folds and/or creases… If it has pin holes, been written on or has a corner missing; unfortunately, it’s pretty much ruined at that point and probably not worth much more than face value.
However, if you have a piece that is relatively in decent to perfect shape (see the currency grading scale here) we’d love to here from you.
Below are some currency error notes of interest such as:
missing serial numbers
misaligned / misalignment
ink smear / smudge error
mismatch serial numbers

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 as some of the notable types of error notes collectors and dealers are interested in.
Errors can happen at anytime and on any denomination such as: misprinted dollar bills – $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 dollar bill error notes, They can be as old as late 1800’s or as recent as 2021.
Types of Paper Money Errors
Some of the known paper money error types include:
Off Center / Misalignment Error
In these types of error notes, they need to be off (or misaligned) at least 35% on either top or bottom, left side or right side. So much so, you can see two bills in one in order for it to be a collectible piece and worth more than face value.
And then… It’s all about the condition. The more perfect (uncirculated) it is, the more value it would have.
Stuck Digits Prints
Serial number digits get stuck during the printing process which leads to partially turned digits.
One of three steps in the printing process got missed and therefore results in black seal or green seal and serials being out of place or completely missing.
One of the uncut sheets of paper currency get sent to be cut into single notes, different cutting errors can occur ranging from minor to quite dramatic.
Blank Back Error Note
(blank reverse) A blank back error note is one where the printing on the reverse side of the note is missing.
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.
Fold Over Printing Error
These often affect corners and can lead to misprinting serial numbers and parts being blank on the reverse of the note.
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.
Mismatched Serial Numbers
A bill will have two different serial numbers on it.
Serial numbers and or seal is generally missing, upside down or out of order.
