    Dramatic Doubled Second Printing $5 Error

    Doubled Second Printing Error Fr. 1974-G $5 1977 Federal Reserve Note PMG Choice Uncirculated 63 EPQ.
    This error type is found only on small size notes. Dr. Frederick J. Bart states on page 126 of the fourth edition of United States Paper Money Errors that, "small size notes with doubled impressions are legitimately rare." This is reinforced on page 190 of the second edition of US Error Note Encyclopedia by Stephen M. Sullivan as he has assigned his highest class rarity rating of R9 for this error type. The dramatic example in this lot has two complete 100% second printings with the separation between the two printings being 1mm. The two face plate numbers in the lower right corner are B256 and B279 and they are easily readable. Lincoln has four eyes and doubling of his other facial features. This is a great example to represent this error type in a major error collection or to be a keystone of a budding error collection that will some day become major.
