    Fr. 1345 50c Third Issue Justice Very Choice New. This Red Back Justice from the Hoffman Collection is a perfect Gem but for some offset smears on both sides. The note is strictly original, with excellent embossing and ideal colors. One of the smears on the back is most unusual, and something we've never seen before: it's the letters "CURR" from the word "CURRENCY" that appears beneath the figure of Justice on the face. However, they're not a simple offset, as they are right reading (not mirror image.) We're absolutely convinced that this is a genuine anomaly, but can offer no good explanation for it. We're also at a loss to explain why the letters appear in an odd position and at an awkward angle on the back.
