I am a cashier and seen this and bought it.  Being that it is a short run of 360k and its is a error print, I joined pmg in hopes of getting it properly graded.  I have several paper bills that are unique however I felt that this one was worth paying attention to.  Can anyone give me info on how to send this in and which tier it would go into for grading?

Looks like you've done some research on the note, I'm not convinced it's worth grading, that is if you were going to try and sell it for a profit. If you're planning on keeping it, that's a different story. A star note is good, a slight misalignment is also good but I'm not sure you'd get your money back. It'll be close. If there is some of the next note printed on it then it's a different story.

Looks like you would have to select the Economy Special tier when submitting. If you haven't already, I'd read this https://www.pmgnotes.com/services/Submitting.aspx and this https://www.pmgnotes.com/submit/services-fees/pmg/  to get an idea. You can also try posting in the Ask PMG section or give them a call for assistance.

I'd love to see some of your other error bills. 

Good Luck,

I agree with FM unless I'm missing something about the EK* block.  I even checked to make sure the stars were pointy end up.  Looks like a VF at best with ink at top.

May be a tougher block (EK Star).  Here's one that sold as a lot of two with another start note for $59.  Face value is $40 and the notes were Crisp Uncirculated. https://currency.ha.com/itm/federal-reserve-notes/fr-2090-k-l-20-2004-federal-reserve-notes-choice-crisp-uncirculated/a/141913-84399.s?ic4=ListView-Thumbnail-071515
