    Continental Currency May 10, 1775 $20 Choice Extremely Fine. One of the very nicest examples of this rare issue that we have had the pleasure of seeing. This is the only Continental Note with a distinctly different shape and design from the rest of the series. It is printed on thin, weak, white paper that was furnished by Benjamin Franklin. The left edge of the paper is polychromed using a marbling process. This note has its original embossing, and an extremely wide multi-colored left edge, strong signatures and excellent margins. The note is undamaged and unrestored save for some very minor strengthening of the single center fold.
