The Star of (I think) Kuala Lampur, Malaysia published an article this week about a man's discovery of a banknote error.
SOME avid collectors of ringgit notes with print defects would probably be interested in owning a RM50 note which was withdrawn from an ATM at the Penang International Airport.
The legal tender was found stuck among 20 pieces of RM50 notes which was withdrawn by remisier Norhazi Ismail, 45, at about noon yesterday.
Bearing the serial number, ‘PP1981485' on the back, the note had an extra flap on the front left top corner.
"This banknote is legal as it came straight from Maybank. Also the paper quality, serial number, photo of the Agung and watermark are all intact," he said.
Norhazi, a former bank worker, said this was the second time he had found such a note.
"In 1984, when I was working in the then Southern Bank in Bayan Lepas, I received the old RM100 note which had two faces of the King on it.
Norhazi said he would keep both the ringgit notes as he felt they might be collector's items one day.
