Extra flag error Indonesia 10000 banknote

Once a sheets of currency paper are fully printed they are cut into individual notes. In some cases, after the printing steps have been completed but prior deliver to the cutting station, a sheet may be folded over or under itself at its corner or edge  when its final printing stage off-track or out of alignment. When it is ultimately cut into individual notes, the folded or bent portion is cut along with the remainder of the printed note. Following the cutting step, the folded or bent portion unfolds and shows itself but remains attached to the regular note.

The result of a cutting error is a note that has an extra paper flap or ''flag'' which often bears a portion of the printed design from an adjacent note or extraneous selvage that was intended to be cut away. In this case, the width and/or length of the note may extend well beyond the dimensions of a properly cut note.
