    Cool note @MR168.
    Once the 32-subject sheets receive the first (back) and second (front) print, they’re cut into 16-subject sheets to receive the third print or overprint. This note is from a sheet that was inverted before receiving its third print. Third print errors are typically dramatic and are some of my favorites.

    Another form of 3rd print errors is mismatched serial numbers, Charter numbers and block letters. Most mismatched serial numbers can be attributed from a press operator failing to set the same sequence of numbers on the two different numbering wheels prior to initiating a print run. Under these circumstances, the mismatch is usually evident in the leading digit(s). This 1974 $5 FRN is a well documented error.

    Really nice examples of 3rd pass print errors with clearly articulated explanations for each. I really like mismatched serials but the inverted overprint error is just so eye catching & dramatic.

    Another dramatic error is when the third print ends up on the wrong side (back) of the note. This 1977A Natick Ace is well documented and prices keep creeping up, mostly because of supply and demand. There just isn’t enough of them to satisfy all the collectors that want one. I mostly like this error because it’s visible on both sides of the note.

    "_another mismatc_h"
    -really nice "TomX4"

    "This 1977A Natick Ace is well documented "
    -Two questions "Steve."
    1. When you write "well documented" does that mean the note has been subject to numismatic articles or just sold several times at different auction houses?
    2. What does "Natick Test Paper" mean? I take it this was a limited run testing a specific rag/linen content?

    Well documented to me means, several collectors have assembled a census of known notes and the error is also mentioned in Fred Bart’s Error Guide.

    Natick paper, I believe, is a coating and not a specific formulation of the content. Maybe I can get ahold of Vern Peterson, who I consider the authority on the subject and he can answer some questions for us.

    I heard back from Vernon, and through his forensic testing and multiple FOIA requests, no definitive answer has been determined.
