DescriptionSigned by Tench Tilghman Continental Currency February 17, 1776 $7 PCGS Choice About New 55PPQ.
The last example we sold in this grade was back in 2011 and that AU brought around $400 in a far inferior market. This note, from the John J. Ford Jr. collection, has stunning printing quality, bold signatures and exquisite detail. Of particular detail is that one of the signers of this note is Tench Tilghman. This Marylander was an officer in the Continental Army and served as aide-de-camp to General Washington. He also carried the surrender papers from Yorktown back to Philadelphia where the Continental Congress presided.
