Such a shame that someone with such an established account doesn't know any better.. If it were a newish account you could possibly blame ignorance.... But this guy
Come on.....


The hologram has clearly been removed (and there's remnants of parts of it still visible). If you're going to do something like this, why the heck would you half butt the job?

This person seems to be into stamps more than bank notes. Is offering a good return policy. Could be a legitimate oversight.

The reality is a currency grading service has certified a note like this one so why blame this person.

idk , he sells graded and ungraded notes, so imo it's hard to claim oversight. Personally if I'm not 100% sure an error is legit, I would NOT even attempt to put it up for sale

The holograms are printed onto the substrate in one pass, it would be highly unlikely such spotty/patchy print would only show up at the top portion and be blank on the bottom.

I did this in about 10 minutes.



Plus another 5 minutes. Look familiar?

There was a great discussion a while ago on this forum about the ease with which the hologram could be removed with some chemicals. I'll try to dig the post out.

I believe that the Charlton GPMC does not consider the missing hologram on Frontiers Series Notes as a valid error as it can be easily duplicated.

Here is the post where the member had experimented with chemicals and which was able to remove the metal on hologram stripe with much ease:
