COMMENTS
a(n) > 10^floor(n/2).
All terms have last digit 1 or 9.
Squares of terms are listed in A085877.
Decimal representation of each term is formed by the reverse concatenation of initial terms of either A063006 or A091661.
Except for 3, there are no solutions for n>1 and m^2 == -1 (mod 10^n). See comment in A063006 under extensions. - Robert G. Wilson v, Jan 26 2013
If a(n)<(10^n)/2 then (10^n-a(n))^2 is also congruent (modulo 10^n), its just not the least. - Robert G. Wilson v, Jan 26 2013

EXAMPLE
1249^2 = 1560001 == 1 (mod 10^4), and there is no smaller m > 1 such that m^2 == 1 (mod 10^4). Hence a(4) = 1249.
