My mother was a bank teller in the 70s.  She came across a $10 Bill that on the 'back' side seems to have both the correct printing AND an inversion of the front of the bill.  I was wondering if these are collectable of if it's just 'something that happens' and nothing special.  Or even ... if that's evidence of forgery or something. 

Thank you for any comments.

Definitely could be collectable . A photo would be useful ......

Should have read a little further and thought about a picture, sorry.  Kind of felt like it could be stolen like a digital code.  Here's a picture.

(Edit: almost like a smaller version is printed on it, but I'm just guessing.  It's weird that the top two 10s are inverted but the bottom are not) Click image for larger version - Name: Misprint Possible.png, Views: 48, Size: 1.74 MB

Welcome to the Paper Money Forum.

Looks like a full Face-to-Back offset transfer error. If it’s not already, get it into a currency sleeve. If you don’t have one, message me and I’ll send you one. Are you able to post a photo of the other side ?

I took it out of the sleeve she had to take the first picture (did it like my old baseball cards, but based on your reply, probably shouldn't have).  So I took this picture while it was in the sleeve, if needed I can take it out again.

I would get it into a new currency sleeve. The one it’s in now appears questionable.

Ok, will look for somewhere to buy one.  Thanks for even looking, and double thanks for the advice.

Looking at amazon there are soft and hard cases ... should I be looking for a hard case, or just 3/sheet soft sleeves?

Many of the members here use Denly’s for currency sleeves.

Thank you for the link.  So I should assume that this would be worth spending some money on to protect?

I can smell the PVC from here... definitely ditch that sleeve.

BTW the Ten's are not inverted they are mirrored (offset)- because they got their ink from a piece that should not have had ink on it, but did, because the paper didn't get into the press, so the ink was transferred to where the paper should be. The next properly fed sheet ends up getting that ink on it's face, as well as the proper inking it should receive on the other side. Think of making a sandwich - the jelly misses the bread and hits the counter, so the next time put a piece of bread down, that jelly gets on the one side in addition to the side you are spreading it on. Now, I am hungry...

Thanks everyone.  I drove to a coin shop today and picked up some protectors.  Sure makes the bill look nice, the other 'sleeve' had a very noticeable yellow tint when I compare.  Thinking it would be a nice piece for my office unless it's 'super rare' and belongs with a collector.  What would be my next step?  I showed the guy working at the shop and said "I was told it was a full Face-to-Back offset transfer error" (Credit to Steve in Tampa).  He gave his opinion that it was correct and said it was the "best example he's ever seen".  I should have asked how long 'ever' is.

Anyway, thanks for the information and what would a next step be to see if it should be with a collector (amateur or otherwise) and not just on a bookshelf?

Many would submit the note for authentication and grading. It definitely meets the monetary threshold for me. It would make it much easier to market the note in the future for either you or one of your heirs. The grading company typically lists the name of the error on the holder. Makes it super-safe.

I would list it on ebay or offer it for sale here in our BST Category (ask for a certain price or for offers). https://www.papermoneyforum.com/?forum=551498 

It is a nice example but there are others in better condition out there. You can see past sales history here:

and see some examples for sale here:

https://www.ebay.com/sch/11116/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=%2410+1974+offset  


I would buy it for the right price! as I would anything! ðŸ˜‚
