Malaysia 8th Series RM10 (1996-1998) 3 In 1 Uncut Bank Note With Mismatched Serial Numbers.
One or more numerals of one serial number may not exactly match the same numerals of a second serial number overprinted on the obverse or reverse of a bank note. Serial numbers are commonly applied to a note after the obverse and reverse designs have already been completed.The serial numbers are usually added by a pair of counting wheels manually set and then automatically advanced as a new sheet is moved into position.To a far lesser extent, the prefix letter that begins a serial number or the suffix letter at the end may be mismatched from one serial number to the other on the same note.
A mismatched serial number or prefix (or suffix) letter is sometimes caused when the two counting wheels are not initially set to a accurately coincide with one another.In this case, notes on subsequent sheets will have mismatched serial numbers until the error, which is not always immediately apparent,is discovered and rectified.
