    Dramatic $2 1976 Cleveland Doubled Overprint

    Fr. 1935-D $2 1976 Federal Reserve Note. PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ.
    A dramatic doubled overprint is found on this Cleveland deuce. Desirability is an understatement as these error Cleveland $2s is what is emblazoned in every serious error collector's mind when this error type is brought up. All of the examples known show two different serial numbers which are separated by either three (Sullivan 1st Edition page 208) or four (Bart 4th Edition page 129; Sullivan 2nd Edition page 200) digits. The serial numbers on this lovely error in this lot are separated by four digits. Also, the serial numbers are shifted vertically far enough apart so that all of the characters are distinct with just a tiny amount of overlapping. The district seal, the Treasury Seal, and all four "4" district indicators are doubled, too. This is the highest graded example without any equals of this error that has been in our auctions. Our archives also reveal that we have auctioned three other examples of this error in the third party grade of 64 EPQ/PPQ since April, 2016 and they realized prices in the $14,100 to $16,800 range. Look for this higher graded example to bring even more.
