Who knows, maybe some collectors in Thailand will keep their misprinted banknotes.

I have a feeling they'll be worth more than 20 B, as a "lucky" bank note.

I can understand a few misprints but a whole batch.

somebody fall a sleep or more likely did not give a sh..t what he was doing

I feel that the error probably from De La Rue's staff not familiar with Thai numerals. This is probably the first time they have been printing Thai notes after a long while.

Dabbled in this area of unique notes and there is definitely money to be made if you find some.

Pristine flat condition, no creases or marks, consecutive numbers Roman numerals, higher value and bigger market for resale, and you may have a winner.

It is not only Thais that collect there are many Farlung collectors of Thai currency with many specialists in "error" notes.

Slightly off subject, avoid having anything to do with "Silver Dollars" in Sth East Asian countries. 99.9% are fake, if not fake, you cannot afford the price of a real one.
