THIS IS A 1995 REVERSE ENGRAVING ERROR BACK PLATE 295.

During the production of Series 1995 $1 notes, one printing plate was engraved incorrectly at the Fort Worth facility. Back plate #295, intended for use at the Fort Worth facility, was accidentally engraved with the s.6 mm size plate number usually used for Washington, DC's plates. The error was not noticed at the BEP, and plate #295 was used in production in Fort Worth for several months.

As a result, all Series 1995 $1 notes printed with this back plate will have the "FW" facility mark on the face, but a small-size plate number "295" on the back--a combination which should not occur. These notes are now known as Fort Worth 295 error.

THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE GEM FROM THE L-W BLOCK, RUN 4, FRONT PLATE 370.
THERE WERE ONLY 5,000 SHEETS PRINTED. IT IS EXTREMELY RARE, ESPECIALLY IN THIS CONDITION.
THANX FOR LOOKING.
