Description

    Continental Currency April 11, 1778 $4 PCGS Choice About New 55.
    The rarest of the Continental issues (although May 20, 1777 is close), which seems to be borne out by the grading services. PMG has graded only six of these, and PCGS a mere four. This PCGS Choice About New 55 is by far the highest, with its closest competitor a VF-35. This note is from the lower left-hand corner of the sheet, with huge margins at the left and bottom going all the way out to the irregular edge of the sheet. The note has a single sheet fold about 1/4" from the top, which seems to be all that separates it from the fully uncirculated grade. It's well printed for any Continental, but especially so for a Yorktown, as these tend to come rather weak and fuzzy. A highly important piece, and one of the very finest Four Dollar Yorktowns to exist. The highest yet graded at either service, and likely to remain that way well into the future.
