    Inverted "W" Prefix Letter Fr. 1619 $1 1957 Silver Certificate. PCGS Apparent Very Fine 30.
    A "W" letter slug was accidentally put in with the "M" slugs and one day the "W" was pulled from its storage bin and put in the lettering wheel upside down and used as an "M." This inverted "W" error is found only in the upper right-hand serial number prefix letter and only in the E2 or E4 sheet positions, with this being an E2 example. The Apparent grade is for writing in ink on the face with the year "1959."
