Hi all.

A friend sent me photos of this $50 bill. Note the '5' on the obverse which is a distinctly different color than the the '0' beside it

I checked the serial number and it's not a rare or experimental issue. So I'm wondering if this is a printing error?

Any feedback is appreciated.

Thanks,
Peter

You must have poly errors certify or no one will buy them , either it's missing colour and worth a few hundreds or worth 50 bucks, BCS has certified some poly errors recently, they are in Kitchener quite reasonable fees

-that's b/c errors are SO easy to manufacture with polymer & the right solvent.

The OP looks like the background (behind the 5 of the 50) is simply darker than the background behind the 0. I've scanned polymers with notes behind them and the scans look weird (since some parts of the note are translucent & whatever is underneath shows through/ other parts the note is more opaque/not affected by light shining through). Tough call unless the $50 note is in hand.

One very similar to your friend's note sold for CCCS EF-40 US $1,025.00.

I am not sure if the link will show up but here it is:

Get it graded it looks like CCCS is grading Polymer errors and it will definitely sell for around $800-$1000

Thank you! Her note is nearly identical to that one and she says it is in brand new condition. She got it from a bank and saved it right away.

If your friend wants to get it certified, which she should if she wants to sell it, suggest
getting it done at BCS in Kitchener.
You could drive there in less than an hour to save having to ship it and they are
known as one of the best for banknotes.

Worth $50 unless you have it certified, polymer errors are easily faked.
As others have mentioned previously, I would suggest you use BCS or CCCS, you can google for their sites.
CCGS is in Calgary according to their website, that might be a rather long drive.
"Dipping" is not considered cleaning...

OOPS, typo on my part, DBM is correct.
I meant BCS (Banknote Certification Services) at 991 Victoria Street in Kitchener.
They are in the same building as Colonial Acres Coins.

I think you are confusing CCCS and CCGS with each other because they are separate companies. CCCS is based in Quebec while CCGS is based in Calgary. CCCS seems to be the more popular grading company with many banknotes graded. Hardly any banknotes are graded by CCGS.
