    Top-Grade New Hampshire August 24, 1775 3 Pounds

    New Hampshire August 24, 1775 3 Pounds PCGS Choice About New 55PPQ.
    With its Newman Collection pedigree, this example is an ideal candidate to represent New Hampshire in a top-flight "13 Colony" set. A superb looking note from this series, with the printing, typeset, and ornaments attributed to Daniel Fowle. The 3 Pounds was the highest denomination, and this bill was due 20th December, 1777. Virtually as made, with minimal handling. It has lovely originality, and the embossing to the blank back is plainly visible. Well margined and showing a nicely shaped left indent. This note is similar to the Boyd raw uncirculated note sold as Ford X: Lot 4740 at $5,750. Another stellar note that joined the collector's community when we sold it at the Newman Part VI sale in April 2015. The price of $2,820 was quite reasonable for such an extremely scarce type in superb grade.
