    Description

    Continental Currency April 11, 1778 $8 Choice New. This is one of the very nicest Yorktown Continentals of any denomination that CAA has had the pleasure of handling. It's very well margined all the way around, cleanly printed (these often come with a mushy look) and problem free. Most important of all is the fact that it is genuine, as most survivors of this issue are not. The British printed many thousands of counterfeits of this issue, which brought about a recall of these notes. Counterfeits were rejected at the recall, and consequently are far more common than real examples. This piece will be a prize acquisition for any collector of early notes. Est. 1,500up
