Rare Marbled Edge ContinentalContinental Currency May 10, 1775 $20 PCGS Apparent Extremely Fine 40.
These $20 notes were printed on weak, thin white paper furnished by Benjamin Franklin. The left end of the notes had a polychrome multicolor anticounterfeiting device that gave the notes a distinctly different appearance. This example of this rare note that, while lightly circulated, picked up a few small edge tears. Then it was severed in two and repaired at center. The repair was skillfully performed, and thus it leaves us with a note that appears much better than it sounds. The marbled edge is significant as it is wide as five-eighths of an inch. It covers the extra wide left margin all the way to just short of the vignette and thereby completely covering "Twenty Dollars."
