The very first graded pair for the BEP 2013 series $1 Matched Star  FRN serial numbered-pair error to have been graded...

And now I have my own ungraded pair (B04439848* with bookends).

Impressive Ed, congratulations. I know there’s been several members working on a centralized serial number data base with available matches including member @cronzone

Very nice, and tough to accomplish.

Very cool - is there any idea on the extent of the duplicates ? Is it typical to print same series and reserve bank at two facilities ?

These are his notes! I have a different set of serials and there are only seven (7) matched DC & FW pairs for the entire 6-runs (3-DC & 3-FW).

Yes there is data to be seen and had in the "SPMC Journals". I am also in the process for a new article which has been sent to The Banknote Reporter.

I need to correct the statement above.
NO, this is unprecedented! Never before has the BEP printed  $1 Star Replacement notes with the same FRN Serials for the same FR District twice and at different facilities (DC & FW) and had them reach the public. This is a first-time-ever blunder of this type.

I'm not into numbers/fancies so find these to be an amazing pairing.  Presumably they were packed and distributed separately. and it's not like they're low numbers = say the first thousand or so serials.  Even with a centralized database, the amount of effort, or luck, to match these up is just mindboggling to me.  Given that one shows circulation adds a whole order of magnitude of "amazingness."  Well, at least they're not for the St Louis FRB.

Congrats indeed and thanks for sharing.
Always interested in St Louis MO & IL metro and Evansville IN paper money, scrip, financial docs, banking ephemera, etc.  Also collect Latvian 1915 - 1940 city and national paper money by block letter/variety
