    My brother pulled this from circulation an gave it to me. I get a little childish an excited over star notes an errors. Is this considered an error? Or A slight normal misprint. Besides being a star note. Thank you for any information on this an your opinion! IMG_20220113_034233383.jpg

    I’m not exactly sure what you’re seeing as an error. I see a well worn 1981 $1 Philadelphia replacement note with less than perfect centering, but well within BEP tolerances.

    Well thank you for your reply! Is there a link for more information on what is within BEP tolerances?

    Not that I know of. It’s something you get a feel for through experience.

    Is a reverse plate number that high normal?

    On this series, yes. They go up as high as 3297 because the BEP continued using BPs from the previous series (1977A).

    in order for the note to be considered an ERROR the subject (printed area) needs to be cut off.

    Correct !
    Here’s an example of one that is a minor error. If you look real close, you’ll see a sliver of the the note below this in the lower margin.

    Usually, the lower the serial number, the more collectible, and thus valuable, a note can be. Being a star note helps and a lot of collectors collect them. Of course with notes, condition is everything and your note is heavily circulated, so not that good.
    Check past sold notes with low serial numbers for an estimate of your notes value. I would certainly keep this one.
