The 1995 $1 FRN 295 Back Plate error is an engraving error. These errors were printed on $1 Federal Reserve Notes at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing's western facility in Fort Worth Texas. These micro size "mule" notes have back plate numbers which are 40% smaller that the normal Fort Worth plate numbers were inadvertently printed at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing's western facility in Fort Worth Texas
There were eleven blocks and a very scarce star note printed for a short three month period (February through April 1998). Many of the 295 BP errors were printed in partial print runs creating some scarce blocks. The 295 blocks consists of GM, GN, HE, IF, IG, IH, JF, KI, KJ, LW, LX and G*. Some of these error notes are available for direct purchase and can be purchased as single notes or in four note sets (4NS). In a four note set the 295 error can be collected by front plate number, block and/or print run. For questions or additional information please email email@example.com or call (908) 479-1899.
The 295 GM block was printed for two runs R 14 & 15). Very few notes from this block are available with most in low grade. The GN blocks are listed here by Run (R) and Face Plate (FP) combinations. They can be collected as single notes or as four note sets (4NS). The four note sets include the 295 error note along with the three other notes printed together on the I-10 press. Like Web notes they can be collected by front plate number, block and print run. Some runs are very scarce. All notes listed here are ChCu or better unless otherwise noted. For questions or additional information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (908) 479-1899.
The 295 back plate error note on the left has a plate number which is noticeably smaller than the regular Fort Worth note on the right.
