One Sixth of a Dollar Fractional Continental - Top Pop at Both Services CombinedContinental Currency February 17, 1776 $1/6 PCGS Gem New 66PPQ.
Well margined on both sides and beautifully printed, this Fractional displays the bold red signature of Joseph Redman. Both vignettes show remarkable detail on this plate letter C piece. Natural paper surfaces are observed and the note earned the Premium Paper Quality designation from PCGS. Currency is spelled "currencey" in the right border ornamentation on the face of this denomination. These notes are legitimately rare in the Uncirculated grades. Both services combined have graded eleven Uncirculated examples. PMG's highest graded piece is a lone 65. PCGS has graded five Uncs with this incredible 66P alone at the top with a 63 its closest rival. In the last several years, six 63's have sold near or above the five thousand dollar mark. The marketplace will decide what this finest known piece will bring, but we certainly expect it to approach or exceed the five figure mark.
