Errors on Irish Bankotes

Post#1 » Sun Aug 14, 2016 5:00 pm

Printing errors are an interesting side effect of banknote production. Some error notes manage to escape into circulation.
Irish error notes are relatively rare, especially older issues. Collecting errors tends to be a niche end of note collecting and Irish error notes tend to be undervalued in terms of their relative rarity. Some error notes can be quite spectacular.

Here are a few Irish error notes.

Bank of Ireland £5 1943 missing print error. the red printing layer is completely missing from both sides of this banknote.

Here is a National Bank £10 note from 1942 which may be a similar type of error with the pink print layer completely missing. I attach a 'normal' note for comparison.

Wow! There is quite a striking difference.
The serial number on the possible error note is normal, suggesting that the note has not been tampered with.

Looks like the yellow is too strong on the top note, and the pink is just totally faded. Could it be just a badly enhanced scan?
