Some B Series errors can be quite spectacular.
Here's one that I had not spotted before — Partial offset transfer on a £10 note.

Ireland 10 Pounds 1983 error note.

A similar error, this time with Queen Medb absent from her throne on the B Series £1 note.
I've seen a few of these over the years.

Here's an error with extra paper, caused by the banknote being folded when it was being cut.

Here is another £20 error with print missing which is a bit different from the one above. It fetched around $250 in the Whyte sale in Dublin today.

Are any 5 pound or 50 pound errors known in the collecting community?
I have never seen one.

I have seen a £5 B Series error note with extra print, similar to the £10 note above. Haven't seen a £50.

EDIT: I knew I had a pic of the fiver somewhere, took a little while to find it:

Ireland 5 pounds 1981 print error.

This note has most of the face print on the reverse also.
The face of the note is normal.
