    Description

    Continental Currency April 11, 1778 $40 Choice New. A lovely Forty Dollar Yorktown, with good printing quality, margins all the way around and a strong nature print. Yorktowns are the rarest of the Continental issues, and putting together a denomination set in high grade is a great challenge that can last a decade or more. This same note was recently auctioned as a counterfeit, but the reason was not given, and it appears to be genuine to us. It also does not match any of the known counterfeits listed in the appendix in Newman.
