    Late Finished Face Plate 86 Fr. 1702* $10 1934A Silver Certificate. PMG Very Fine 30.
    We have auctioned only two examples previously of this star rarity. Those two times were in September, 2001 and September, 2015. Engraving of face plate number 86 was started during the micro plate number era. Next it was stored in the plate vault and forgotten until 1940. Plate 86 was then finished in May, 1940 with a macro face plate number instead of a micro face plate number. The plate was then on the printing presses from July 18, 1940 to June 29, 1944. Since it was started during the micro plate number era, it should have had a micro size plate number. This curiosity for face plate 86 (and also 87) has been listed in specialized catalogs dating back to at least the 1960s. These were known as "trial notes" in the earlier days.
