    Description

    Continental Currency April 11, 1778 $5 Extremely Fine. A broadly margined example of the only rare issue of Continentals. Most importantly, the note is absolutely genuine, while in fact most survivors of this issue are not. The British printed many thousands of Counterfeits, which brought about a recall of these notes. Counterfeits were rejected at the recall, and consequently are far more common than genuine examples.
