DescriptionContinental Currency May 10, 1775 $20 PMG Very Fine 20 Net.
This is a very collectible example of one of America's most historic paper currency notes. Uniquely printed from the May 10, 1775 Session, the $20 uses marbled polychromatic paper, which is visible at the left end. The marbled paper obtained by Benjamin Franklin for this purpose was later used on the first United States Federal Loan Certificate (Anderson-Smythe US-1). The face and back emblems and mottos were sketched by Franklin. These emblems also appeared on the backs of $30 Continental notes. Despite some repairs and pieces added, this example has a very appealing overall appearance.
