    1976 $2 Federal Reserve Note Doubled Third Printing

    Fr. 1935-D $2 1976 Federal Reserve Note. PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    A dramatic doubled/additional 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 doubled overprint error type is mentioned. 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 piece is tied with one other as the highest graded example of this Fr. 1935-D error that has been in our auctions. We auctioned that PMG 65 EPQ piece for $18,000 on an estimate of $15,000 to $20,00 last August.
