    New Hampshire July 3, 1776 $5 PCGS Apparent Very Fine 20.
    This is a high denomination example from the second Daniel Fowle, Portsmouth imprinted series of notes. Like the first Fowle series, this used an interesting ornamental and typesetting style, much different from the Massachusetts notes of the time, and thus it exhibits a special character. All six denominations are unpriced in Newman and Friedberg. This issue appears to require some additional research as the mottos in Newman do not correspond to the reality of the notes in all cases. PCGS assigned the Apparent VF 20 grade due to an "Edge Tear at Left." We sold an inferior example four years ago that realized over $1,700.
