Collecting Error Banknotes

posted in: MA-Shops News | 0

Misprinted Money

Many collectors are searching for special banknotes, for example banknotes with a low serial number or banknotes with rare errors. Collecting of misprinted banknotes is very popular, despite the fact that the errors are not unique.

When a misprint occurs, it also occurs in many others in the printing process. For example, the banknote may not have been cut correctly, but also the use of the wrong ink and the lack of information on the note is also possible.

Many of these banknotes can be found on MA-Shops. The category with error banknotes has just been expanded with many Dutch banknotes.
