DescriptionContinental Currency February 17, 1776 $1/3 PCGS About New 53.
These fractional denomination Continentals are found only in this, one of eleven different issues. Because of its connection with the Fugio Cent and the design elements that were suggested by Benjamin Franklin, this design type, although not rare, has remained one of the most treasured and highly collectible Continental issues. This particular piece has the margins and print quality of a fully gem example. Only the very closest of inspections reveals a minor sheet fold across the very bottom accounting for the AU 53 grade. At Central States last April, we auctioned a PCGS 55 PPQ for $2585, and we would expect this note, with its far-superior centering, to approach that level.
