    Continental Currency May 10, 1775 $3 PCGS Apparent Choice About New 58.
    As with the $1 and $2 of this issue, high-grade Three Dollar notes are extremely rare. The PMG census indicates a total of 47 Continentals graded through and including the Three Dollar denomination, without a single Uncirculated piece. PCGS has graded only four Uncirculated notes for the three lowest denominations of the 67 that they have examined. High-grade, low denomination May 10, 1775 Continentals are massively undervalued, and the advent of the grading services ten years ago has given a true indication that those of us who always thought these notes to be extremely rare were correct. The current note is well margined and quite bright with a fully strong brown signature and a faded red signature. The apparent grade is for a "Small Paper Pull From Mounting on Back," which we cannot find through the holder.
