    Description

    Giori "Washington" Face and Back Test Note. Uncirculated.
    These Giori test notes were printed in 1976 by a Magna press in Geneva, New York. These notes should have been destroyed, but they were spirited away into the collector community. It is now permissible to collect these interesting items. This is the green face variety with the Lincoln, Washington, and Grant portraits. The trio of horizontal bars on the portraits were used for cancellation purposes and all Giori test faces are found with these bars. They are known by their center portraits, either "Washington" or "Jefferson." They are listed in U.S. Essay, Proof and Specimen Notes second edition by Gene Hessler, pages 244-47. This example has two board breaks. Board breaks are common for "Washington" Gioris.
