DescriptionContinental Currency May 20, 1777 $6 Contemporary Counterfeit PCGS Apparent Choice About New 58.
Only a single counterfeit is described in Newman for this issue and denomination, and this is the nicest example of that counterfeit that we have seen. Unlike our later Federal notes, Counterfeit Continentals are perfectly legal to buy, sell and collect. All are scarce, and most are quite rare. Although this issue was extensively counterfeited, for some reason the notes are remarkably scarce. This is a great looking example with bright forged signatures and all of the tell-tale characteristics that Newman mentions. The last Counterfeit example we sold was a PCGS 15 Apparent for $305. The reason for the Apparent on this note is a minor paper scuff on the back. From the face this handsome note has the appearance of a Choice New.
Estimate: $850 - up.
