GUTTER OR INTERIOR FOLDS
“Gutter or interior folds demonstrate a blank,
unprinted, white channel interrupting the back, face, or over-printing. Gutter
folds develop when a double wrinkle
occurs in the currency paper as it receives a printed image. The pleated area
remains protected and continues devoid of an impression. With the pleat or fold
intact and undisturbed from its position at the time of printing, no error is
apparent. The design appears complete and the note seems to conform to
appropriate dimensions. However, when the crease is opened, the characteristic
white gutter disturbing the design becomes exposed.”
