I have a miscut one dollar bill that I would appreciate any information on. Pics are attached. 2017 series Chicago. This particular bill was offset equally on the front and back and with a jeweler's loupe you can see the very beginning of the next bill in the series. Are these as uncommon as I am hearing and do they hold value?

    Extremely poorly centered note. I’ve always been told that to be considered an error, the note must exhibit a portion of an adjoining note in the margin. I have one example in my collection that barely squeaks by as an error. If you look closely, you’re able to see a tiny sliver of the note below this note in the lower margin.

    Yes in my description i stated that you see a thin line of the adjoining note printed on the very left edge of the one pictured. With my jewelers loupe I can see it clearly. Does this help my cause?

    Do they still sell uncut sheets and partial sheets to the public? If they do a note like that could be easily cut from a sheet and be offered as an "error".

    All glory is fleeting.

    you see that on Ebay all the time....scammers can make a lot more money luring the unsuspecting with more obvious freak notes...The BEP has lists of all the sheets sold but uninformed collectors don't know this.....This one is real but is not worth much more than $5 (to someone wanting to pay $5)...since there is only $1 invested, keep it in a drawer.
