    Continental Currency April 11, 1778 $30 PCGS New 62PPQ.
    The highest example graded at either service, and in fact, this is the only uncirculated Thirty Dollar Yorktown that has been graded by either service. The 62 grade appears to be due to the somewhat close margins, as the note has the eye appeal and overall look of a Gem, save for the margins. In viewing this collection, with all its broadly margined Continentals, one tends to forget that the typical centering is nothing like what is seen here. This Yorktown $30 is actually better than what is typically seen for Continentals, with the design fully clear of the borders on the back, and just barely touching in a few places on the face. This note is the plate note in the Fifth Edition of Newman, and the only Yorktown illustrated.
