    Description

    Genuine James Wilson Signed Yorktown Note

    Continental Currency April 11, 1778 $4 PCGS Apparent Very Fine 30.
    A very rare colonial note from our 2015 Central States auction where we said: "The April 11, 1778 "as Yorktown" notes comprise the rarest series overall. This is a key note for specialists and autograph collectors since it is a Yorktown, making it rare to begin with, but most importantly it is signed by James Wilson, Signer of the Declaration of Independence. Most importantly, it is a genuine signature; he generally used an amanuensis to sign notes. Apparent and "Missing UR Corner," but desirable as the Newman plate note and the key "Signer" note."
