DescriptionContinental Currency May 10, 1775 $20 Very Fine-Extremely Fine. One of the prettiest examples that we have seen of this rare Continental. The marbled indent at the left edge is extremely broad and wholly original. It appears as though the centerfold has been strengthened, but the note has the look of a fully XF example. These Twenty Dollar bills were printed on weak, thin white paper that had been furnished by Benjamin Franklin. The left end of the bills has a polychrome multicolor anticounterfeiting device that gives the notes a distinctly different appearance. They were also considerably wider and shorter than any of the other Continentals. The back of this example, as on all known pieces, is inverted.
Estimate: $3,500 - up.
