    Description

    Continental Currency April 11, 1778 $8 PMG About Uncirculated 55 EPQ.
    Decently margined and very attractive, this $8 Yorktown is from the only truly rare issue of Continental Currency. Most importantly, the note is absolutely genuine while, in fact, most survivors of this issue are not. The British printed many thousands of counterfeits of this issue which brought about a recall of these notes. Counterfeits were rejected at the recall, and consequently are far more common than genuine examples. The second highest example that PMG has graded but only a single 58 above it.
