Printing Errors and Mistakes (Worldwide)

Here are some of the mistakes made with Monopoly games from all over the world. I am sure there are a lot more out there.

Yellow Properties

From the very origin of the American Atlantic City editions a small mistake crept in the rents of the yellow streets.

Normally all rents of the first two streets of one block of three are equal while those of the 3rd street are somewhat more expensive. However, that didn't apply for the yellow streets for decades!

For indistinct reasons only the rent for the unbuilt most expensive yellow street has been the same as that of the other two.

These property deeds come from the 1935-First Deluxe Edition (Replica), item #1009 of 2002.

These property deeds come from the standard edition, Ref. # 44021.

These property deeds come from the Singapore edition -"The Lion City", Ref. #402S.

Not until 1982 and often even later, as the specimen of Singapore shows, the rent of the unbuilt property of the 3rd street was raised. This phenomenon applied for all countries where Parker Brothers and Waddingtons issued their Monopoly games!
