    One of Only Two Uncirculated Five Dollar Yorktown Notes at Both Services Combined

    Continental Currency April 11, 1778 $5 PCGS Superb Gem New 67PPQ.
    When we last sold this note in our 2016 Central States auction, our description read, "Only two uncirculated examples have been graded for this $5 Yorktown Issue and both of them are 67PPQs. PMG has not graded a single Uncirculated example. This note is truly Superb, with broad even margins, deep original embossing and bold two-color signatures. This Yorktown Issue is by far the rarest of the eleven continental issues and high grade examples, when they do appear, are always hotly pursued. We sold the other PCGS 67 PPQ CC-72 in last April's Central States Auction and saw it realize the runaway price of $15,275. Now that there are two that price is unlikely to be equaled, but we would certainly expect a five figure realization." A check of the population reports indicates nothing has changed. There are still only two Uncirculated examples of CC-72 at both services combined, both are PCGS and both are 67PPQs. At the above quoted sale, this note realized just under $10,000. It should sell for no less this evening.
