Being stuck at home due corona virus stay-at-home proclamation, I have been sorting through my modern FRNs.  Last night I noticed the serial numbers do not correspond to the plate position. For instance, H00000743* should be plate position A1, but my note is H4.  Does anyone know the reason for this?

The plate does not have a large plate position number seen on 50 subject plates.

Too much math for me. The only thing that’s obvious to me, is that it’s from a 32 subject sheet and according to uspapermoney, it was overprinted with LEPE.

This is a 10,000 sheets run.  Position H4 is a correct one.

Yes, 320,000 notes printed, LEPE note.

Printed in October of 2012. 

Jim, do you have the 2009 K star as well ? That is another toughie.

LEPE note from a 32 subject plate?

On a 32-subject sheet plate, for a 320,000 note print run, H4 would be serial numbers from H00310001* to H00320000*.

Concerning the $1 Series 2009 K-Star, I am pretty sure I have one.  The last star note I needed in CU was L-Star.

Edited to Add - Yes, I have a Gem K-Star.

The Dallas star was harder to find than the St.Louis star, at least for me it was.

For me, the L-Star was the most difficult to find.  Then the H-Star, then K-Star.  I found only one L-Star in AU in circulation, but was able to buy a CU example cheap at a show.  I found three circulated H-Stars, but I had to buy the CU note above in a Lyn Knight auction.  I think I have two K-Stars in CU, but do not remember how I came across them.

Yes Jim, that is correct. 

Here is a detailed breakdown for the entire series, color coded.

Some collectors were also scrambling to find an L-X note. As of now, only one example (66EPQ) is in the PMG pop report.

 Note: only series 2009 L/X was a low print run with only 12.8M 
There is no such thing as a problem … Only an opportunity to excel.

Jim, BEP used the LEPE to print those 2009 32-note sheets.  2009 was more or less testing the practice.  I am not sure about the K-* (500 sheets) or the L-* (80,000 notes).  It would be interesting to know for sure, but, then they switched to the 50-notes per $1 sheet in 2013 series.

Sorry, but the K-* and L-* I was referring to above were in the 2013 series.

So, if the $1 Series 2009 H-Star was a hybrid of the two processes, which other non-star notes are also this way?  Anyone keeping track?

Jim: See the link I posted above. And below.

The dark green and dark purple notes are LEPE.

Jim, the two runs for the 2009 J-* are LEPE. The second run is a very short run...

Both runs of J star are the same length: 640,000 notes.

The second to last run of B star is LEPE as well, but the exact run size is unclear, as higher than BEP reported numbers have been observed.

So it appears LEPE printings on 32-subject plates was common for Series 2009.

Only at the end of the series. There are some short run LEPE notes for the specialist as well.
