    Description

    Superior Grade October 17, 1780 $1/6 Rarity

    Maryland October 17 1780 Small Denomination Act $1/6 PCGS Very Fine 30.
    There are only four denominations in this compact series of extremely low denomination change bills. All are very rare in any grade, but this example is exceptional for the type and may be the finest for the type. Diminutive format, but printed on two sides by Frederick Green. The Newman Collection had all four denominations, but each had some faults here or there. They all sold for over $2,000 handily despite that. Sharp corners, clean surfaces, and a bold signature. This beauty in a comment free holder should certainly exceed that price for the astute collector recognizing rarity and quality such as this.
