    Rare Fr. 1296 Variety

    Fr. 1296 25¢ Third Issue PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ.
    This is the rare variety with the extremely large lower-case letter "a" 7mm to the lower right of its normal position. This unusual size and placement occurred only on plate #144, which was one of 90 face plates used for this issue. This information was originally published in Paper Money Magazine volume 11, #2, page 80, in 1972. When Milt Friedberg's Encyclopedia was published in 1978, only three pieces were known, however, the current count is more than a dozen. This piece is bright, with reflective bronze, deep original embossing, four full, even margins and a near perfectly centered back. A gorgeous note and the second highest of this number graded by PMG.
