PCGS describes this note as a Misaligned Overprint – First Day of Issue Stamp and Postmark. They leave out the word ‘unique’ since it is not for them to say. However, until now, no such note has been recorded for sale or listed in either Bart’s or Sullivan’s error guides.

This First Day of Issue Stamp and Postmark was processed at the Mount Pleasant, PA, Post Office on Tuesday, April 13,1976.

Mount Pleasant is one of the oldest towns in southwestern Pennsylvania. According to their website, “In 1794, during the Whiskey Rebellion, federal troops encamped in the town arresting the local “Whiskey Boys” who protested the new whiskey tax. In this period the settlement earned it’s name ‘Helltown’.”

Fast forward 200 years to 1976 and the ancestors of those free spirits were likely little concerned that this $2 bill they were commemorating looked someone odd.

This note has a wonderful visual presence, consistent with all great errors.

For the error collector or First Day of Issue collector, this is an opportunity to add a unique note to your collection that both collectors and non-collectors alike will admire.

If you are seeking out the truly rare and distinctive, you’ve come to the right place. If not, you at least know where to find Helltown.
