    Inverted Third Printing Fr. 38 $1 1917 Mule Legal Tender Fine-Very Fine.
    This exciting inverted serial number note carries serial number M29859852A from plate position A. This rare error note has resided in one collection for many years. The paper is bright, the edges sound, and the overprint is dark. The wear is also even, while the paper surfaces are original. As mentioned in the Bart error reference book, the inverted overprint ranks among the rarest errors on large size paper money. In fact, he has tracked only seven different examples trading hands in a span of 60 years.
