Description

    Maryland May 10, 1781 5s PCGS Apparent Very Fine 20.
    Only the third example we have sold, with the first a 12 Apparent to which we gave this description: "A low grade to be sure and with multiple minor problems that have caused the apparent grade to be assigned. Nonetheless, Red Money Marylands are extremely scarce in all grades. Of the handful we have sold, this is the first five shillings. From the face, the note appears better than the assigned grade with all of the text clear. The back is soiled and somewhat weaker, although the important central red vignette is easily seen." That note realized $1,380 in 2011. This note, although also Apparent, is worlds better. The restorations and minor stains comments are accurate. The signatures enhanced comment is in our opinion incorrect.
