    Inverted Back Error Fr. 2011-L $10 1950A Federal Reserve Note. PMG Choice Very Fine 35.
    An inverted back Type 1 error with several scattered folds. This example realized $822 on a $750 to $1,000 estimate at our April, 2016 Central States Auction. All inverted backs prior to Series 1981A are of the Type 1 persuasion with nicely centered faces and backs. Type 2 inverted backs started with Series 1981A due to a change in the cutting stages that produced a dramatic face and back misalignment. The San Francisco district for the 1950A Series is not listed in the table of inverts found in the 4th edition of the Bart reference. Our consignor is a major contributor to that tome.
