Lebanon's commemorative note to be issued with error

Remember the coming Lebanese commemorative note of 50,000 pounds marking the 70th anniversary of the country's independence which will be issued on November 22nd? Apparently I wasn't the only one who thought the design looked like a bad photoshop job

It now appears that the new note will have another flaw: a spelling error. As Reuters reports: "The French-language face of the special issue 50,000 pound note, which is worth about $33, spells 'independence' as it is written in English, rather than the French 'independance'."

Wow, this new note looks like a real winner...

Update: According to the Lebanese Daily Star demand for the new note is huge. Due to the controversy lots of people want the new note so the resale price on sites like eBay is expected to go sky high.
