1995 $1 295 Back Plate errors are engraving errors printed on $1 Federal Reserve Notes. They were inadvertently printed 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. Eleven blocks and a very scarce star note were printed for a short three month period (February through April 1998). Some of the 295 BP errors were printed in partial print runs creating some very scarce blocks.
295 HE blocks are listed by Run (R) and Face Plate (FP) numbers. They are available for direct purchase either 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.
