Sheets of currency paper are cut into individual notes by overhead blades at a cutting station once the sheets are fully printed. In some cases, a sheet will be folded over or under itself after printing steps have been completed but prior to cutting. A corner or edge of a printed sheet may be folded down or bent back if the sheet exits its final printing stage off-track or out of alignment with respect to the intended axis of travel through the press. When the sheet is ultimately cut into individual notes, the folded or bent portion is cut along with the remainder of the printed.
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.(Ref:World Paper Money Errors by Morland C. Fischer.)
