    Misaligned Back Fr. 256 $2 1899 Silver Certificate PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    One of the most misaligned large size notes that we can recall seeing, much less offering. This note is from the A plate position and the down and to the right shift of the back printing reveals all except for a tiny bit along the top of the sheet identification numbers, which in this case is 58768. We also see part of the "feathers" of the paper guide line arrow at top center. The Stephen M. Sullivan error reference, US Error Note Encyclopedia, states that "Moderate and major misaligned face or back errors are unknown on Large Sized Currency. A few examples of minor misalignments are known to exist but are rare." In fact, our current offering is much more misaligned than the two examples plated in the Sullivan reference. Our conservative nature deems this Deuce as a moderate misaligned error. However, we will listen to arguments in favor of major. Furthermore, this is a well preserved and boldly embossed error on a denomination that is coveted by error collectors.
