PostSubject: MIHON is not an overprint?   Thu Jun 24, 2010 11:36 pm

Here is a MIHON overprinted 50 centavos. Many fake MIHON overprinted notes came out in the market lately but for those who would like to know the difference between the fake overprint and the genuine. One method of authenticating it is by looking at the overprint itself. Genuine overprints are embedded beneath the inks, meaning, the MIHON is not really an overprint but is actually part of the paper itself. Therefore, MIHON marks are already there even before the final printing process for the notes design. Genuine MIHON is very rare because the method of production of specimen notes is so complicated. Notes with double MIHON in small denomination notes are extremely rare.

Even for the most clever and crafty forger, producing a MIHON paper money is impossible. So when one of you encounter a dealer selling a MIHON overprinted note. Don't buy it unless it is not an overprint. Clever japanese.... :D

How can you tell the counterfeit from the real one? Please tell me the details because I've been offered by these notes more than once and they are very expensive. I don't want to get burned. Thanks Very Happy

The rarest notes of the JIM period are SPECIMEN notes. Not only that it has MIHON symbols on front but also "SPECIMEN" are at their backs.

Hi, guys! A friend of mine is selling me these JIM notes with the Mihon overprint. I know these are authentic because I trust the guy. Just wondering why is it considered fake if the Mihon "overprint" is actually an overprint.

Welcome to this forum,

Counterfeiters used silk screen method to print MIHON on Japanese notes and modern day printers while genuine MIHON are embedded on paper itself. Your JIM notes have seals or chops which is different from MIHON notes. These are printed using stamp pad or seal.
