Once I discovered a replacement 1902 Plain Back, I realized that there should exist replacement 1882 Value Backs of the same style. An earlier look through the NBN Census (www.nbncensus.com) revealed exactly zero hits, but I did get lucky while searching through the Heritage archives (www.ha.com). There I found two replacements.
Like the 1902 Plain Backs, one of the replacements I found has the "hybrid" font with the old style 2 and 3, and a newer looking 4. The other one does not have a 4 in the serials, so it is hard to determine if it is of the old style or the hybrid style. I feel that we will find 1882 Value Backs with the old style 4. Here is the summary for Value Backs to date:
|Data through 8/31/2012||$5||$10||$20||$50||$100||Total|
|82VB #1 Notes||0||0||0||0||0||0|
|82VB Not #1||1||1||0||0||0||2|
|Overall Total for All Types||42||31||6||1||0||80|
Next week is the final installment of our blog series. We'll wrap it up with some summary statistics.
