    Description

    Continental Currency April 11, 1778 $4 PMG Choice Extremely Fine 45. A very rare high-grade Four Dollar example from the only rare issue of Continentals. Although this is a genuine example and very scarce in that form, Yorktowns are almost always seen as deceptive counterfeits. The existence of these deceptive counterfeits is the reason that this April 11, 1778 issue is the rarest of all the Continentals. When these counterfeits appeared shortly after the genuine notes were issued, the Continental Congress voted to recall all April 11, 1778 notes. Few genuine notes escaped the recall, and all are highly prized today. In a comment-free XF holder.
