    That is pretty impressive (though with photoshop you can never be sure of anything these days)

    Do they look and feel like real notes? I guess if you were going to fake them you would pay less attention to the serial numbers (no one else does) and more attention to the obvious details.

    Other than that, maybe there is a sorting issue or a bored note printer.

    Nice, I have no idea how that would have occurred naturally though. Though I don't know too much about bank notes and how they are sorted or distributed. Even in 100 notes you would think it unusual to get two with the same number let alone three.

    Have the bank staff been sorting through them for you?

    I have handled a lot of bundles and to say this is rare is an understatement

    Downies used to snaffle these sort of bundles.

    the letter prefixes are different though.

    Yes that's the point. Consecutive prefix's with same serial are hard to put together due to the way sheets are cut up and distributed.
