Good morning,

Thanks for your message.  On this particular note the "le" would stand for Limited Edition.  For this particular FR number there was a 150th Anniversary set with a specific serial number range that were part of this limited edition group.  

If you have any other questions, please let us know.  Thank you!

Hello Jennifer,

Another question,

would these have been sheet production from the BEP? 

Thank you

I might be able to help now that I know what they are.

Looks like the $2 all started with 2021 and were limited to a release of 10,000. Since the serial number is 8 digits that would limit the range to 20129999 - 20120000 (BA block). The $5 was similar in that the serial number started with 1862, that along with the release limit would close the range to 18629999 - 18620000 (J)GA block). I would assume they were printed on full sheets and then cut, but I can't say for sure. Those are my best guesses anyway. (shrug)

You can still buy the original sets online for under $40.

Hmm. Good to know. Yes, I did read some info at BEP, but there was not an in-depth explanation of the "le" notes. But your explanation seems to fit with the anniversary dates mentioned.

Appreciate the info.

Take care  hm 

Thank you
