    10¢ Second Issue "Short" Experimental Face PCGS Gem New 66PPQ.
    The third example we have handled in 55 years (how pathetic is that?) in dealing in Fractional Currency. This 10¢ (all known are 10¢ notes) Fiber Paper Face is nearly 1/4 inch shorter than all other second issue faces. This, obviously, does not include the rare category of notes where either the left or right end is only partially printed. When closely examined, the coal car of the train at the extreme right and the wheel house of the riverboat at the extreme left are exactly as complete as on the far longer notes. Milt Friedberg attributed this to "shrinkage" which seems logical on its face, but does not really offer an explanation. In any event, in its 66PPQ holder this is by far the nicest example of this variety we have seen.
