The bill is permanently tagged and also marked with the US Treasury Also, above the Del Monte tag is the serial number, which means that Del monte’s label was printed earlier on the paper, and it is not yet clear how this could have happened.
According to the auction house of Heritage Auctions, the bill was first discovered by an Ohio college student in 2004 and you got it simply by making a withdrawal at an ATM. The student posted it on eBay, where it sold for about $ 10,000. It was later sold a second time in 2006 for $ 25,300.
Collectors fell in love immediately. The location of the ‘Del Monte Ecuador’ label is ideal because it covers part of the printing details and is overlaid by part of the Treasury Seal and the serial number of the note, ”said Heritage Auctions Vice President of Foreign Currency Auctions, Dustin Johnston, according to Yahoo.
Now, It will be up for auction for the first time since 2006 and the highest bid so far is $ 105,000..
