DescriptionContinental Currency February 26, 1777 $30 PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
Both services have graded two 64s of this number for a total of four, and there are three other notes graded above them. This denomination has two emblems on the back that add to the visual appeal. These notes are known as the Baltimore issue because the notes were authorized by the Continental Congress when they convened in Baltimore because of the British occupation of Philadelphia. The notes may have been printed partially or completely in Philadelphia, as the Continental Congress was able to resume meeting there on March 4, 1777. Additionally, this note is signed by Benjamin Levy, the only Jewish signer of Continental currency. His signature is usually in red and very faded. This one, although it is in red, remains quite strong. Levy signatures are not really rare but are seldom seen on high grade notes. Last April we auctioned a 63PPQ without the Levy signature for $1,527. This note should do quite a bit better.
Estimate: $2,000 - up.
