    Description

    Continental Currency April 11, 1778 $5 PMG Very Fine 30. This is an attractive mid-grade - and importantly, genuine - Yorktown example. This Yorktown issue is the only truly rare issue of the eleven different emissions of Continental Currency. The British printed many thousands of counterfeits of this issue, which brought about a recall of all the Yorktowns, including the genuine notes. Counterfeits were rejected at the recall, and consequently are far more common than genuine examples.
