    One of Only Two Uncirculated $40 Yorktown Continentals at Both Grading Services Combined

    Continental Currency April 11, 1778 $40 PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ.
    The $40 Yorktown note is one of the denominations that is most often found as a counterfeit. High grade examples need particularly close scrutiny as the counterfeits tended to circulate for shorter periods of time and are generally found high grade. This gorgeous PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ example traces its history to the Affleck-Ball sale and is absolutely genuine. The PMG population report indicates that this lovely 64 EPQ is the only Uncirculated example of a $40 Yorktown that they have graded, with its closest rival a 58. PCGS has also graded only a single Uncirculated example, a 66, making this the second finest known from both services combined and one of only two Uncirculated examples in any grade. Well signed with somewhat tight, but even margins, and wonderful paper originality.
