    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 serial of this web note from run 12 with plate combo 2-1 has the F* block and the right side serial 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 prefix "*" or suffix "*" error type that we know of. Only one other example of this particular error has crossed our auction block. That PCGS XF 40PPQ note realized $29,900 in September 2008. Tonight's example has red ink on the back that has lightly bled through. Nonetheless, it is a great error in many respects.
