PARTIAL BACK TO FRONT OFFSET

“The offset or wet ink transfer places a retrograde image on the wrong side of the bill. Within the printing industry, including the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP), offsets carry the designation of blanket impressions.”

*excerpt taken from United States Paper Money Errors by Dr. Frederick J. Bart



 BOARD BREAKS

 

“The designation “Board Breaks” refers to the error resulting from a partially broken impression cylinder. An impression cylinder forces the unprinted currency paper into the intaglio recesses of the printing plate. The impression cylinder, or rigging, carries a wooden external wrapper, rigid enough to ideally sustain the workload yet pliable enough to squeeze the currency sheet into the plate. Because the impression cylinder endures such extreme pressure, areas occasionally become fatigued. The end result of such fatigue is failure as segments either compress into the cylinder or fall away. This disruption produces a white unprinted area on the finished piece of paper money that correlates directly to the portion of the plate cylinder opposite the broken segment of impression cylinder. Consequently, every note printed using the imperfect impression cylinder will exhibit the identical error-matching in size, shape, and location - unless the defect expands and/or until the rigging is replaced.”
