    Description

    Continental Currency April 11, 1778 $5 Extremely Fine. Only a single variety of counterfeit Five Dollar Yorktowns is listed in Newman, and this note does not at all match that description. Five Dollar Yorktown counterfeits are, for some reason, nearly as rare as the genuine examples. We've handled seven Five Dollar Yorktowns over the years; four have been genuine and three counterfeit, as compared to $40 notes, where we've handled 23, with eighteen being counterfeits. This note is well margined, well signed and clearly printed on both sides.
