I haven't verified it myself (don't have one handy)... any one tried to look? :dunno:

Was in China recently, everytime I pay with 100RMB bill, they always take a long time to scrutinize the note. Ah, now I know what they are looking for.

I guess its a ruse or the scanned note is from a earlier series . I compare 20 pieces I have and observe one distinct difference is the lower lip area of MZD. The blemishes on the 100,10 and 1 dollar note is different on 1995 & 2005 amd sometime note to note of the same denomination.

I also scanned a 100 note up to 4800 dpi and nothing came close to the pic.

Misprint from note to note is impossible. Not for currency. Unless the plates for that print batch was created wrongly.

Someone faked the sex diagram in photo editor to fabricate a fictitious story for Internet.

PRC would be using top class machines from Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG. This kind of misprint is a fairy tale.

The germans are not god. I do see similar shapes in the middle. Its entirely plausible with tiny excess of ink blotches
