    A-* Block Discovery $5 Rainbow Note

    Fr. 64 $5 1869 Legal Tender PCGS Very Fine 20.
    An interesting $5 Rainbow note that exhibits serial number A 50790. Until this evening, just the K-block was thought to have been employed during the third printing process. The "A" prefix was used in numbering Fr. 18 $1 1869 Legal Tender notes and Fr. 127 $20 Legal Tender notes. Possibly some $5 sheets were mixed in with either of the other denominations while awaiting their Third Printing. Regardless, this interesting note demands more research.
