    Attractive (1776) Undated $5 "Barrel Beehive" Note

    Georgia (1776) Undated $5 Barrel Beehive Fr. GA-81 PMG Choice Very Fine 35.
    The types from this (1776) Undated series are scarce and feature interesting vignettes instead of the color seals used on other issues from the period. A very charming type with a Barrel Beehive vignette at the lower right. This example has considerable eye appeal well in excess of its technically assigned grade. Paper originality and embossing are clearly evident from both sides, but especially when viewed from the blank back. Surprisingly not designated an "EPQ" note by PMG. Superior to the Newman Collection note that realized $1,800 in November 2017.
    From the Hunter Collection.
