The Elusive Double Error Military Payment Certificate

Posted on 6/16/2015

PMG grades $5 Military Payment Certificate with rare error.

An incredible find just graced the halls of PMG… a Series 611 $5 inverted back and misaligned front underprint error. This note is a beautiful example belonging to the Guy M. Araby Collection, and will be offered in the Heritage September auction. These error notes are highly sought after from both error and MPC collectors alike as few examples have been recorded. Along with this spectacular error is a bookend note to accompany it.

Past examples have carried the same double error, but it is hard to say what else may be out there surrounding the Series 611 $5 Military Payment Certificate. This pair is sure to spark interest from many across the industry as it is not only an extraordinary example, but also a much desired rarity that may not come along again for a long time if ever. Maybe you will be the winner when the hammer strikes at the Heritage Expo Currency Signature Auction in Long Beach on September 16-22?
