Printing defect or fake?

Post by Iori_Yagami » Sat Aug 15, 2015 7:22 pm

Do notes have printing defects? How closely are they monitored?
I noticed that one of my :note-10: notes (europa series) had some odd thing - on reverse, in bottom right corner, the first of the three writings (EURO in Latin script) was slightly blurry at the edge of the letters, where the red-brown letter meets the white background. Almost as if it was a misregistered double impression. It is very crisp and clear on other notes. Strange?
All other features are perfectly ok - watermark, thin strip, hologram, back tilt-strip, colour-changing number, raised marks on edges. The two other writing (in Greek and Cyrillic, that is) are perfectly clear and crisp.
I don't have the note anymore, and the printing code I don't remember, but it was definitely either U or V.
So, what's your idea?
