    I have a series 1996 $100 bill, S/N AB68609866E, which was printed with the paper reversed. That is, when viewed from the front the watermark is in the left field with Franklin facing left, and the security thread is in the right field. When held to the light and viewed from the back side, they are oriented as they should be from the front. Wouldn't this error be about the same as postage stamps with inverted printing? Both are due to the stock entering the press in the wrong orientation. Has anyone seen one of these before? I would like to know how I can get it authenticated and appraised. Can anyone help?
