HOTTEST SEGMENTS of the CURRENCY MARKET

as recent auctions have proven!

 

this is an

INCREDIBLE EXAMPLE

at an

AFFORDABLE PRICE

 

INSUFFICIENT INK

“The insufficient inking error develops when the ink fountain fails to fully charge or fill the printing plate with ink.  The ink fountain stores the ink alongside the press.  When the reservoir runs low, pressure weakens, or a partial obstruction in the supply tube occurs, inadequate amounts  of ink flood the intaglio design in the plate.  The net result is a printed image which is faint or incomplete.” 

On this note the Color Shift Ink "20" in the lower right corner of the face is missing completely. This is a scarce error that occurs only on the 1996 notes series.
