When Christopher Cook withdrew a 20 note from a Sainsburys cash machine in Sherborne, Dorset, last April he noticed it had two squiggly lines on the Queens neck.

The 75-year-old immediately felt a rush of excitement: either he was holding a fake or, more likely, an extremely rare mis-printed banknote worth far more than its face value.

Local firm Charterhouse Auctioneers confirmed it was a mis-print that could fetch up to 2,000 under the hammer, but it didnt have any suitable auctions coming up.

So Christopher found a specialist auctioneer 14 miles away Lawrences, in Crewkerne, Somerset and posted the note for an auction scheduled for November as he didnt want to make the journey himself.

Unfortunately, thats where his luck ran out. For Christopher chose to send the valuable 20 banknote with the delivery firm Evri, from a ParcelShop in Sherborne.

He posted it on September 27 but, much to his dismay, the note never got to the auction house. Evri says the small package is lost and cannot be found. And because Christopher didnt pay for signed-for delivery, he is not entitled to any financial compensation.
