Misprinted Serial Number With A Low Digit

Misprinted Serial Number with Stuck Digit

This is a very minor misprint that is not especially valuable. Collectors call this a stuck digit or a gas pump error. On the two dollar bill below it is most noticeable on the last 3 in the upper right serial number. The low serial number occurs because the numbers on the serial number roller gets stuck or jammed. For those of us who remember the non-digital gas displays, we can see why this misprint is sometimes called a gas pump error.

Minor examples of this error might be worth a few dollar over face value. These are neat to see, but they aren’t rare.

We really only buy extreme examples of this misprint. If you think you have one, send an email to admin@oldcurrencyvalues.com
