Description:

$1 1969 Federal Reserve Note


this has a MISMATCHED


SERIAL NUMBER


in this instance, it is specifically the


F 68/67xxxxxxA


error


this is a VERY POPULAR mistake, 


an IMPORTANT and NECESSARY PART of EVERY "TYPE" 

COLLECTION of ERROR notes


mismatches are rather subtle, so most escape and enter circulation 

before being spotted--any high grade example is a genuine exception


mismatches occur in one of two ways: either the press operator fails to properly set the two independent numbering wheels in synch  (this generally reflects a mismatch at the beginning of the serial number) or the numbering wheel sticks on one side and continues to advance normally on the other


some mismatches have only one or two known, those are extremely rare and extremely valuable because of the few known; others have many known--which makes them perfect choices to serve as a examples of the error


some collectors attempt to acquire:

--one of each known variety

--one example from each denomination

--one of each type and denomination of FRN and SC including

   BOTH mismatched serial numbers and mismatched prefix/suffix

   letter

--one of different high-grade examples

--OR--simply one of whatever strikes the collector's fancy as     opportunity and resources permit


in particular, this example boasts:


affordability


This particular example has been independently authenticated and graded by


PCGS


at the grade of


Very Fine 25


The book, United States Paper Money Errors, by Dr. Frederick J Bart, is also available on eBay from our firm and other sellers.  There is an entire chapter devoted to the mismatched error along with many illustrations of the mistake.  It is an invaluable guide to all types of currency mistakes and misprints.
