Ohio Man Finds $20 Bill Worth $396,000 In ATM – World Record “Del Monte” Error Note
An Ohio college student found a $20 bill that looked a little bit funny in an ATM one morning, and that note sold for $396,000… a slightly more than what he withdrew it for. Makes me want to check my wallet a little more often for error notes – it doesn’t take much to command some huge premiums! This type of error is an obstruction or a retained obstruction error to be specific… and while the original finder made close to $10,000, the value (or just purchase price?) has rocketed since then! The Del Monte note had flown under my radar, and when I saw it, I knew I had to make a quick video on it.
