PMG Registry Featured Set: US Printing Errors

Posted on 6/15/2021

This month’s featured set belongs to D. Myers.

This month, we are going to stay local and look at a unique PMG Registry Signature Set that is sure to appeal to many. There are so many popular ways to collect notes — such as fancy serial numbers, a certain series or portrait — but this set stands out from the crowd as it contains a large number and variety of printing errors.

D. Myers’ MONEY-MISTAKES - ERROR (TYPE-SET) COLLECTION found here is packed with printing errors on small-size US notes. From offset errors, fold-overs and paper jams to elusive mismatched serial numbers and board break errors, this set has it all.
