    Choice New Fr. 22 with the "of 1875" Doubling Error

    Fr. 22 $1 1875 Legal Tender Choice New. This is the "B" series note from the 1875 Aces. Only about 20 examples are known in all grades, just two of which are listed in the census as being uncirculated. The other two uncirculated notes are 20 numbers apart. This one, which is new to the census, falls right in the middle of those two. We sold one of them in May of 1998 for $7150. That note was also from plate 35. Plate 35 has the doubled "of 1875" in "Series of 1875" at the upper left. This piece represents the fifth known example of this erroneously engraved plate. An interesting fact is that this same plate was in service long enough to be used for at least three different Friedberg numbers: Fr. 20, 22 and 25. The Series "D" note, which appears below in this sale as lot 16686 is also printed from plate 35, but it does not exhibit the error. All five examples that we have examined of this error come from plate- position "B"; the Fr. 24 appearing below is from the "D" position of the same plate. It is certainly possible that this error exists only in the "B" position. This currently offered example is a strictly original piece, with deep embossing and excellent color. The doubling is bold and easily seen.
