    Condition Rarity December 7, 1775 $1/6 Note - Likely the Finest Known

    Maryland December 7, 1775 $1/6 Fr. MD-80 PCGS Choice About New 55PPQ.
    This Maryland $1/6 in spectacular condition originated in the Newman Colonial note collection and very likely will never meet its better. Circulating heavily in commerce, Maryland notes from the period, and this series particularly, usually average Fine or less when encountered today. This is the finest example of any denomination we have seen from the series. The face border cuts were engraved on copper and the notes were printed by Frederick Green, who also signed some notes on this series. The back emblem is deeply printed and well detailed. No denominations from the issue are priced above Extremely Fine in Newman. Fractional change types were especially hard used in circulation and are much rarer in high grades. This gorgeous Maryland rectangular format note realized $1,880 in our Newman Part VI sale in April 2015. We know of no example to equal or surpass this great condition rarity.
