    Continental Currency May 10, 1775 $3 PCGS Extremely Fine 45PPQ.
    As with the $1 and $2 of this issue, high-grade Three Dollar notes are extremely rare. The PMG census indicates a total of 68 Continentals graded through and including the Six Dollar denomination - with only a single uncirculated note among them. PCGS has graded only four uncirculated notes for the six lowest denominations. High-grade, low denomination May 10, 1775 Continentals are massively undervalued, and the advent of the grading services has given a true indication that those of us who always thought these notes to be extremely rare were correct. This note, while technically an EF, has the visual impact of a Choice New piece, with strong signatures, excellent margins, sharp printing and wonderful eye appeal. Certainly one of the very finest known.
