    Continental Currency April 11, 1778 $5 PCGS Choice About New 55.
    Another important rarity, as are all Yorktowns, but particularly the lower denominations. The two grading services combined have graded fourteen notes, undoubtedly with some duplication. The highest grade PMG has seen is a 30, and this 55 is the top grade seen at PCGS. The piece is nicely, though somewhat irregularly, margined, and although a light fold can be seen across the top, the note has much of the look of a Choice Uncirculated piece. This AU is considerably higher grade than any raw note that HCAA has had the privilege of handling, and we would not be surprised if it remained the top graded by either service far into the future.
