    Description

    Continental Currency April 11, 1778 $8 PMG Extremely Fine 40. Extremely well margined, with excellent print quality of the text, vignette and nature print. Most important of all is the fact that it is genuine, as 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 real examples. This piece will be a prize acquisition for any collector of Continentals.
