Please tell us about the 2 different seal styles...
I imagined you would know and chime in!
I did a google search and the first 2 images that they show are like the 2 that the OP has shown. One is printed Higher and the other in the middle.
And that is all I know because I read somthing about it some time ago.
In addition, the article you linked mentions a grade of MS 63, which you will never see on paper money. MS (mint state) is a coin term and not used with paper currency.
Sorry but I am not seeing that they are identical.
The Top seal the words WASHINGTON D.C. looks centered with the letters close together and the lower seal looks higher and the letters look spread out.
You are correct about that and I apologize for provided false information. But it does show the different types of seals. My point was that they show different seals but they don't explain why the seals in question have different positions for the word WASHINGTON D.C.
The back is printed first. The face or front is printed next, minus the blue seal and serial numbers. The third print or overprint is last and sometimes it’s not perfectly centered, and that’s what you’re seeing.
So it is a Printing Error? That's what I was hoping someone with your knowledge would of explained to us! Thanks!
So the 2 examples I have shown from Google have the same Printing Error Issue. You can claerly see the different positions
No. The difference is minor and well within BEP tolerances.
Good to know! So a Printing varience? Within tolerance? OK. Thanks again.
We must have found the same info. Lol
something common at I am sure there are more centered not from that particular series.
... seems identical for both seals.
At the same time the distance between 'one dollar' and and the blue seal...
... appears very different for each blue seal.
[Therefore the seals are different.]
I am taking my meds.
