That is indeed some impressive work! I would love to leaf through it.

When the 2018 edition of Kvederas Web Handbook was released, the first copy I ordered was damaged when converting it from a spiral edge to a 3 Ring binder edge and laminating the binder edge only.

In a rush to finish the laminating process, I was overlapping the pages as they went through the laminator and noticed page offset transfers as it exited the laminator, needless to say I scrapped that copy and ordered a second copy, this time to prevent any offsets I laminated each page instead of the edges only.

This is the Pink 3 ring binder photos.

I added my handwritten census information and additional notes in this copy then when all was said & done, was not happy with the way it turned out and decided to make a even better deluxe edition.

I contacted Bob Junior via ebay and asked if any more White Cover Handbooks were available, the next day he added 3 more copies & I ordered one and contacted a new Web-Head collector I've been mentoring on facebook & suggested he purchase the White Cover edition also (after advising him to buy the orange cover earlier).

On this Handbook I decided to take my time with a laminated wraparound cover and included everything I have related to Web notes, like the only confirmed 100% complete census on overprint errors, including serial number charts showing every serial number printed in error, even unlisted information not mentioned in the new handbook.

I than made copies of all my errors & notes for inclusion as this copy is now part of the collection for the future owner.

Each page is laminated in 3 to 5 mil pouches for years of protection against dirty fingers or spilled drinks.

Awhile back I posted these sneak-peek photos on my facebook page showing what my handbook copy looks like and received personal messages requesting I make additional copies for them.

As much as I would like to, it's not possible, I do plan on making each page available in a PDF file & share it on my wall.

I now realize why I'm not posting much lately here as it's time consuming resizing all these photos in order to post, on Facebook it only takes a few minutes to post, I've already spent around 2 hours on this thread alone.

Anyway, here's a sample of my limited Edition White Cover handbook.

Yes, but it was an impressive diversion.

It is certainly better than what typically happens when stuff gets sideways here.

I'm just... wow...

I feel like I just caught a glimpse of a book some senior left secreted away in the high school library, waiting for a freshman to find it, containing all the test answers and teachers' birthdays.

Or the Marauder's Map.

The only reason this thread went sideways was because in my research for accuracy I spotted a rare Web overprint on back error note that sold in January 2019 on Heritage in a PMG 63EPQ holder & noticed the same note was sold in Jan. 2007 with the description;


Quote:


Fr. 1917-A $1 1988A Web Federal Reserve Note. About Uncirculated.

This A-F block plate combination 5/4 run 1 web note has its third printing on the back.
This is the first time for us to have this type of error on a web note.
Light circulation is observed that includes corner folds.
Only five examples for this run are knows. Not your typical error of this type encountered.


I know the person that purchased this note and asked him if there are any signs of this note circulating, like minor corner folds and the like, he replied it looks perfect.

This person just spent over 4k on the recent Web Star note Heritage sold that graded 67EPQ.

The only issue I had was it was never disclosed.

That's definitely an impressive manual -- it really merits a thread of its own. I'm afraid I don't see how it relates to the original post of currency restoration. Out of respect to the member who started this thread (who is new) it would be nice to get back to the topic at hand.

Wouldn't PMG look up the SN and be reluctant to regrade it higher?

I think @coinfun is asking about restoring, not regrading.

The two questions that come to mind are, what is the value of the note, and what are your expectations.
