New fiver - what is going on?

Recommended Posts

I can understand the very first run - AA01 - going for a premium albeit that £250 sounds steep.

 

But there was one this week where it said AK47 and that is up for £50k on ebay:

And now somebody wants £1,500 quid because of an alleged misprint:

Gail Meikle from Bromborough Pool,Wirral,is trying to sell one of the new £5 notes on ebay which has a misprint and there's a bid on it for £1,699. The misprinted fiver(top),& normal one below.

On her eBay page, Gail writes: “Very Rare £5 note, printing error just below queens head, a line of 5’s below line and other out of linements, AK09. Wxcellent condition, passed 2 hands, no marks, slight soft crease only but very good condition.”

She said another fiver with what appeared to be a printing error recently sold for £1,945.

Probably their early forgery attempts that they're trying to sell... Got to recoup the initial cost of purchasing their home printing press kit somehow.

:D

Queuing for petrol the other day and the loser in front of me asked if they had any new fivers in the till. The cashier gave him one, he checked it and walked off, like a gambler checking his scratchcard.

I had to bite my tongue very hard, the sad ****.
