    Very Choice New 64PPQ $1/2 Fugio Note - Ex: Newman

    Continental Currency February 17, 1776 $1/2 Fr. CC-21 PCGS Very Choice New 64PPQ.
    Fugio notes are available in lesser grades, but this exemplary piece is one of the finest and boasts an Eric Newman Collection pedigree. It was cut from a glorious, fresh and original 24-subject sheet which was dispersed as single notes in the Newman Part VIII sale in 2017; this particular $1/2 realizing $2,880. All 24 individual notes, auctioned for the first time, were avidly pursued as type notes and for sets. This gorgeous "PPQ" $1/2 Fugio note was one of only eight Uncirculated $1/2 notes graded at PCGS at the time of the Newman Part VIII sale. The paper quality is extraordinary and the note has a Gem appearance from the face. This is from the left side of the lower serial number pane of the original double-sheet array. Margins are ample all around and wide at the left, and the printing is even and deep on both sides. The back is slightly off-center to the top and right. Plate A. No. 386966. Signed by B. Brannan in red. There were no Gem New 65PPQ notes in the PCGS population report when these were certified for the Newman sale, and this was one of two Very Choice New 64PPQ graded examples. High grade-notes from this denomination are difficult to obtain. This selection will fit into any top notch set of Continental Currency and is splendid for type.
