    Inverted "W" Prefix Letter Error Fr. 1619 $1 1957 Silver Certificate. Gem Crisp Uncirculated. This is one of only 11 reported serial numbers for this error recorded by Peter Huntoon. A "W" letter was accidentally put in with the "Ms", and one day it was pulled from its storage bin and put in the lettering wheel upside down and used as an "M." This inverted "W" is found only in the upper right-hand serial number and only in the E2 or E4 sheet positions, with this being an E2 note. A normal note from the H2 position is included for comparison, as the inverted "W" is slightly different from a normal "M."
