Wrong letter rolled in on 1875 $20 proof

The error on this 10-10-10-20 Series of 1875 proof from The Annville National Bank, PA, charter 2384, was spotted by Doug Murray. Notice that the siderographer rolled in the letter D instead of A in the righthand position on the $20.

The proof carries a certification date of May 27, 1878. A notation at the bottom of the proof indicates that the mistake was repaired October 20, 1878. If this is correct, a printing with the error was received at the Comptroller of the Currency’s office June 21, 1878, bearing sheet serials 1-600, B839553-B840152. All were issued.
