I received this bill back as change. At first I thought it was just worn and dirty, but upon further examination I noticed that the paper the bill is printed on had not been completely dyed. You can tell that is the case because the lettering on the bill is entirely intact and normal, but the orange color is missing, especially on the left and right edges, but more so on the right side than the left side. The darker portions towards the middle of the bill also do not seem to be dirt, but seem more like a casualty of whatever occurred that caused the edge of the bill to miss its dye. The bill is also not as wide as a normal bill and that is most apparent in the picture of the back of the bill. The bill in the top of the photo is the "error" bill, while the bill on the bottom is there for reference. Does anyone know if this is a common occurrence, or is the bill something I should hold onto?

Looks like a stain and has gone through the washing machine or something similar.
Wait to see what other opinions are out there.

Would a washing machine cause the orange ink to wash away from the paper without dulling the "United States of America" or "We the People" lettering? Is the ink that prints the lettering on the bill more resilient than the ink they use to dye the bill orange? My initial instinct was that the bill was "faded", hence the paper being white rather than orange, but the undamaged condition of the lettering is what caused me to question that.

Looks to me as though it's had some sort of chemical trauma.

In a word, yes. Enzyme-based detergents in particular can make certain banknote inks change colours, while leaving other colours intact. Enzyme detergents are by far the biggest cause of fake "wrong-coloured serial number errors" that I've seen here in Australia.

Let's look at your note this way. This note is quite well-worn, lots of creases and folds. That means hundreds of people must have used it. When it was fresh and clean, without all the distracting damage, then the "error", if it had existed then, would have been even more prominent. If it had looked "odd" right from the start, I doubt people would have kept spending it - someone would have pulled it out to keep, or a bank would have noticed it, seen it was "defective" and returned it for destruction.

But they didn't. So, logically, the note wasn't "defective" back then.
Don't say "infinitely" when you mean "very"; otherwise, you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite. - C. S. Lewis
