    Extraordinary Fr. 1296

    Fr. 1296 25¢ Third Issue PMG Superb Gem Unc 67 EPQ. This is the rare variety with the extremely large "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 plates used for this issue. This information was originally published in Paper Money magazine volume XI number 2 page 80 in 1972. At the time of the publication of the Encyclopedia, only three pieces were known. That census has grown considerably in the intervening years, and the current count is about a dozen pieces. This one is a beauty, with deep, original embossing and unusually large margins. To date, PMG has graded only three uncirculated examples: two 63 EPQ's and this lone Superb Gem 67 EPQ. This piece, which is currently four points in the lead, will very likely remain alone at the head of the census far into the future.
