Hello Do you know anything about errors in dollar
bills? I have a crisp one dollar bill 1981 that is stamped with an "E" on the
front and also on the back.
Man said...It was a logic response because I didn't know the E was reversed.
I need a picture to be more exact but it is possible, it is called Overprints on Back, it would also include a weak serial number along with the E.
In crisp uncirculated it would be worth $250.00.
Anonymous said...Oh I see things more clearly...
I have a picture but how can I show you a picture? The normal cut and paste didn't work. After looking at it closer I see that the E is not stamped on both sides. It has actually bled through to the back. The E is very dark on the back and it is reversed. There are also four 5's that have bled through...as they are reversed, also. The serial number is only visible on the front.
Man said...Anonymous' error sounds like a moderate-lighter version that happened on this ten dollar bill.
Sounds like you have an Offset Error for one dollar bills its about $75 to $100.
Here's a ten dollar example I used Imageshack to host the image and then the HTML tags a and href
An offset error in the 3rd printing of a bill can lead to the "letter seal" and the serial numbers to bleed through the back this is the most common of error notes but still valuable. In one case a 1981 5 dollar bill with a 1 dollar bleed through this of course is a rare and highly valuable.
As you see with the ten dollar error above the prices should be divided by about three for your 1 dollar, so Fine: $50.00 EF: $100.00 CU:$150.00 remember the market changes and see prices reflect the highest you may ever hope to get.
