Description

    Georgia June 8, 1777 $8 PMG Very Fine 25. This serial-number 28 Eight Dollar is the much rarer variety, with the black "in" in the fourth line of the text. This was quickly altered, as the mixture of black and red in the same line created registration problems. Those problems are particularly visible on this $8 note, which also had the word, "to" in black at the beginning of the line, and the last three red letters of the word "continental" on the next line. On this note, the red is printed a bit too low relative to the black. The note is a solid VF 25, without a hint of a problem. This black "in" $8 is priced far above any of the other notes from this issue. The new Newman book values it at $6000 in VF; we doubt this note will get there, but it is certainly a solid four-figure note.
