    Web Note F*/F-L Suffix Mismatch

    Mismatched Suffix F*/F-L Fr. 1917-F*/F $1 1988A Federal Reserve Web Note PMG Very Fine 30.
    A truly wild mismatch as the left side of this Web note from run 12 with plate combo 2-1 has the F* block and the right side displays the F-L block. The "*" is the incorrect part of the serial number as it was mistakenly put in the numbering wheel suffix position instead of another "L" by the operator. Earlier a "*" slug was accidentally thrown into the "L" slug letter bin in order to put these actions in motion. This is the only *-suffix letter or prefix letter-* error we can find. We have auctioned only one other example of this error previously. That PCGS XF 40PPQ note realized $29,900 in September 2008. Tonight's example has red ink on the back that has bled through, but look for this dramatic error on Web paper stock to reach or exceed...

    Estimate: $15,000 - $25,000.
