DescriptionContinental Currency April 11, 1778 $30 PCGS About New 53PPQ.
A well signed $30 that is nicely margined on both sides and is from what is by far the rarest of the Continental issues. Thirty Dollar notes are not known to have been counterfeited, but six of the eight denominations of Yorktowns were heavily counterfeited by the British in an effort to undermine the value of the currency of the nascent United States. The existence of these deceptive counterfeits is the reason that this April 11, 1778 issue is the rarest of all the Continentals. When these counterfeits appeared shortly after the genuine notes were issued, the Continental Congress voted to recall all April 11, 1778 notes. This piece luckily escaped that recall.
