Wet note transfer error?

So I was looking through x125 $1 notes and saw this. is this what they call a "wet ink transfer" error?
If yes, what is the value of this note? Should I get it graded?
thanks!

    I call it an offset error (front-to-back) and consider it minor. When the error occurs, the first note affected is much darker, with the following notes getting lighter and lighter. With the note being circulated and the error being minor, I wouldn't bother with the expense of having it graded.

    Cool. Thanks for letting me know. :)

    It's certainly worth a small premium but, yes, I agree with Steve, the transfer is too light to make it worth certification. On the positive side, it's a 100% transfer and better than a similar note with only part of the design transferred.

    Agreed ... too light. I also like to look for a good balance on the four edges of the front on the back of the note.

    Good question. I’m not familiar with the LEPE presses and how the sheets are fed through. I guess it’s possible the marks are from rollers or guides in the presses. I don’t know enough to give you an accurate answer.
