Description

    Fr. 1296 25c Third Issue PCGS Very Choice New 64PPQ. 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. That census has grown considerably in the intervening years, and the current count is right around twelve. A number of the pieces are very nice, and this is one of them. It's incredibly bright, with reflective bronze, deep original embossing and near-perfect back centering. The face centering is less than perfect, with the left margins being huge and including the embossing of the plate edge. The right margin is far smaller, but well clear of the frame line. A gorgeous note.
    From The Thomas M. Flynn Collection
