    Delaware May 1, 1758 20s Fine-Very Fine. But for edge splits at the center fold which have been reinforced with preservation tape on the back, this is an extremely nice example of this Benjamin Franklin-printed Delaware note. Every word is legible, and the lion vignette is strong and clear. This unusually nice example of this rare issue, which is not priced above Fine in either Newman or Friedberg, should bring a very substantial price. It's interesting to note that this piece is superior to the Newman plate note, which happens to be the same denomination.
