Description

    Georgia October 16, 1786 2s/6d PCGS Apparent Extremely Fine 40.
    This note from the final Georgia issue is boldly signed, well margined and extremely attractive. Even the Freeman signature, which is in red, has not faded. The note has seen some light circulation, but amazingly for this thin, weak paper, it has not acquired a single split, hole or problem of any kind. The Apparent grade seems overly harsh for this gorgeous piece. It mentions mounting remnants on the back that we cannot see through the holder and a restoration near the top center. If we are examining the right spot, it's not a restoration, and if we are examining the wrong spot, it's invisible. Going back a few years, Colonial notes with still smoldering bullet holes were not called Apparent. Now, dust specks are. A very beautiful note which any collector and this collector/dealer would be proud to own.


    Estimate: $1,750 - up.
