Saw a $100 U S on banknoteworld.com today that was listed as an error note for over $400. The mis- cut is merely high, resulting in no top margin and a huge bottom margin. Is this type of mis-cut considered a “legitimate” error?
I would think not, but then if I knew anything, I figure I would be rich........

@Bravo6 Went and looked at it, appears to be a legit error. But in circulated condition like that I wouldn't think that price is fair, too high.

In my opinion, about the $200-$250 would be more in line. But then again I'm cheap 🙂

Ok, I didn’t see the small portion of the next lower note on the first look, I would hope it would not be legit error without that?

Were any sheets printed for that series ?

Also - this is not impressive "Serial Number: Varies from Stock Photo"

The only $100 denomination sheets sold by the BEP to collectors was the series 2009A $100 (LF-A).

Thats what I was wondering. Wouldn’t it be rather easy to create an “error” of this kind?
A rather expensive method I’ll grant you.....

It looks like (per Steve in Tampa) these were not released as sheets. On eBay there are literally a billion "cutting errors" that are $1 sheets hacked up. Since both front and back are aligned, I thought it might be a sheet. In any case, a bit minor and well circulated. Can't see it at that price, but I don't collect errors.

I believe it’s a legitimate error, albeit minor. The price seems high for a circulated note, but you just don’t see them on $100s that often.

Not exactly correct. Partial sheets of $100's were sold for many older series. Mostly 4 subject sheets. Under the full sheet listing on USPapermoney.info you find this:

Certain of these blocks were not released as full sheets, but only as partial sheets. These are:

  • Series 1981 $1, B..A through B..H and H..A through H..D.
  • Series 1985 $1, all blocks ending in B or E.
  • Series 1988A $1, K..A (Fort Worth printing), K..B, and K..C.
  • Series 2009 $2, K..C through K..R.
  • Series 1995 $5, all blocks beginning with H.
  • Series 2006 $5, HF..B.
  • All $10, $20, $50 and $100 blocks of all series.
  • All star blocks of all series and denominations.
The first step to getting somewhere is to decide not to remain where you are.

Thanks @Trucker Jimbo , I should have also mentioned the older sheets. A collector wanting a 4-subject sheet of $100 notes in 1950 would be spending the equivalent of over $4K today in face value to buy the sheet. The equivalent in the late 1930s would be over $7K. 

Yes, older $100 sheets were sold to collectors upon request - 1934, 1934A, 1934B, 1934C and some 1950.  But definitely not any large-portrait $100 sheets, like the note in question. I personally have never seen any of these older sheets for sale. You can view the lists of older sheets and serial number ranges in the back of the SSG.

For some reason I was thinking I had seen 4 subject $100 for recent series (big heads)...but I am probably mistaken. Since they are not in my collection range (or price range really) I never paid them much attention.

I also did not mean to cast questions on the error presented here...as I think it is real.

I guess I am suspicious because both obverse and reverse align, I see way too many  “mis-cut errors” on ebay to think this one is worth much more than face value plus any age......
But as I am irritatingly fond of saying, “ if I knew anything I’d be rich”.....
I actually wish there was an easier way to track the ebay notes that are listed at absolutely ridiculous and criminal prices, just to see how many people actually bite......
thanx
