1988A $1 FRN Back to Front Offset Question

Post by Chris Pruit » Tue, 28 Mar 2000 04:00:00



I have a Series 1988A US $1 Federal Reserve Note Back to Front Offset in
mint condition.

I am trying to find out any information about this note. Can anyone
direct me in the correct direction. I have learned that it is a Back to
Front Offset from Ron Wise's World Paper Money Home Page. I also learned
that it is a New York Federal Reserve Bank printing. But I can find no
more information on the note.

Hi there,

Do you subscribe to Coin World?  There are several excellet Error Currency
specialist (Fred Bart and Harry Jones of Cleveland) among others who advertise
in there.  You might look the Dealers up and give them a call.  You had better
have more information that you provide in your requests.... i.e. Series, Serial
Number, condition, denomination and a complete description of the note would
also be necessary.

If you cant find a copy of CW, contact me and I will get their phone numbers
for you.

Just curious-- are partial transfers more common on the fifties?  I recall a
long time ago seeing a battered one like that, but had two fifties for a time
with parts of the country name from the reverse on the front.  They're long
gone now, and I'm probably going to kick myself if I find out that they're a
rarity.

It is Ironic that this subject comes up 2 days after I found and pulled a Wet
Ink back-to-face transfer $1 note and within the same group of 1000 Serial
numbers, sure enough, there was the face-to-back transfer.  The black ink
face-to-back is much more pronounced and desireable. The back-to-face seems
lighter like there was just too much ink on one note....
Both are 1999 notes with Serial #'s A75875165A back-to-face and A75875009A
face-to-back.  I also kept the note before and after each for bookends....
Has anybody other than me been finding that some of the new 1999 notes have
full packs in which the Plate Position Numbers change.  I have D4 to D2 and
back several times within the same pack of 100 notes.....

The back to face offset is rarer than the face to back. I'm not quite
sure about denominational statistics, but I think it makes sense that
a $50 error would be rarer than a $1 error because less notes were
printed.
