Extra money is not bad for anyone and what better way to make a few hundred dollars in exchange for a five-dollar bill.
Printing errors have caused hundreds of banknotes to increase in value . American collectors are willing to pay up to $150,000 for one-dollar bills or even $100 for five-dollar bills.
This is due to printing errors, which can range from replicated serial numbers , to incorrect impressions on the stamps, often with incorrect colours, skewed or double-printed orientations, or misalignment, so it never hurts to check detail the bills in your wallet.
Currently, collectors are in search of five-dollar bills with an actual value of more than one hundred dollars . These specimens, which were issued in 1981 in the United States, have a misalignment error and are considered “rare” by specialists.
Due to this, there are several collectors willing to pay between $100 and $150 dollars for them (approximately $2,000 Mexican pesos). The error is a PMG AU 55-JL502 misalignment.
On websites like Ebay and Ma-shops , you can find and sell these types of tickets. If you think they have one of these pieces, we recommend you consult an expert on the subject to avoid scams.
It is worth mentioning that it is not known exactly how many copies with this error are still in circulation , so it is worth keeping your eyes wide open when depositing money in your wallet.
