B Series errors

Post by Mac »

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.

Another interesting print error on this tenner, albeit less dramatic than a lot of the others here :)

Looks like a thin vertical fold occurred in the paper prior to printing:

That's a printed fold error - nice!
Do you have a scan of the face and reverse of the entire note?
I'd add it to the main web site.

Sure Mac, I'll mail it to you once I get a chance
