Since I have been locked down at the house i have been working with my error notes.
I created a error info. list for the notes i have or are looking for.
For some of them i need more info. about the error, plate #'s, blocks and such.
If anyone has any info. to add please past it on to me.
Or if i have anything wrong on my sheet let me know.  
This info. is hard to find in one place, I've had to spend a lot of time looking for info. about these notes in books, magazines and internet. 
And still need some info. to finish
See my sheet below,
Thanks, Mike

Thanks Mike. I was aware of everything up to series 1995. I use Azpiazu’s guide and 1999, 2001, 2003 and 2003A plate errors are not mentioned.

Notice the 1999 FP90 error blocks also coincide with the BP 19 errors. 

It may be possible to find a note with FP90 and BP 19.

I do not think its possible.  Different plate positions.

Also, For Series 1999 plate 19 errors, add GB and GD blocks.

Thanks for the info. Dollarsavr.
I do not think you can have 1999 FP90 and BP19 together either, but I would be a cool note.

Yep, different plate positions changes the entire game. Not possible.

Has anyone found 1995 $1 FRN bp 295 error for the I-I block? 

My notes show I found two in a pack but I can't seem to put my hands on them

I think that would be a new block, I do not have any information on a 1995 II block 295 note.
let me know if you  find them.

@mgaokc I think you listed the BA block twice on your 1985 BP295 list. I believe you wanted a CA in there as well?

I wish i had had some new information to share with you but I do not. Thank you for putting your list together and sharing it with the group. If I ever come across some new info I will let you know...
