    25¢ Fessenden with Inverted Back Bronze and Engraving

    Fr. 1294 Milton 3R25.2h 25¢ Third Issue Entire Back Inverted PMG Fine 12.
    When both the back surcharge and engraving are inverted, these notes are sometimes referred to as "Inverted Faces." Only a few examples of this type of error are known, and they all circulated for a time before they were discovered. This piece was formerly part of the famed Friedberg Collection of January of 1997, and later the Tom O'Mara Collection that we auctioned in 2005. Tears are mentioned on the PMG holder, but they are of minimal consequence.
    From the Tabacco Family Collection
