I have a US 20 Dollar specimen banknote.
I can't find another one on the net, does anyone know anything about this, and also the value. Thanks so much.

Sorry, the banknote looks like a fake.
The red print position on the backside looks to bad.
Perhaps you can make better pictures.

Also, all small size specimens have the serial number 23456789 and not all 0's

Thanks for the response. :-)
Here are some better pictures.
Also the paper it's printed on feels like real money.
This is all I could find on the net about them.

And thanks for your time...

Your pictures clearly show ink bleed from contact with water, that leads me to believe that these are imposters that came from an ink jet printer.

Glad you took note of that because I forgot to mention. I don't know anything about how money is printed, and I was wondering that myself. Also this money has a blank back, which I was also curious about. But found something called "Face Specimen" which I think means the printing is only done on the face. Anyway, back in the box it goes. Thank you for the help. :-) I'm eighty years old, it would have been nice to have a few extra dollars before I go, but such is life. ;-)

It may have been produced by a foreign bank or moneychanging company, to help educate their staff on what modern American money looks like. But it's not an official Fed-issued specimen note.
