DescriptionContinental Currency April 11, 1778 $4 Very Fine-Extremely Fine. A very rare high-grade Four Dollar example from the only rare issue of Continentals. Although this is a genuine example and very scarce in that form, Yorktowns are almost always seen as deceptive counterfeits. 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. Few genuine notes escaped the recall, and all are highly prized today. This four-dollar example has three good face margins, but it is tight across the top. Boldly printed, it's one of the very nicest examples we've seen of this denomination.
