    Early Green Back New Jersey

    New Jersey April 12, 1757 L6 Choice Fine. The corners are rounded, and the left face margin is tight, but this is a far nicer example than typical for this rare note. All three signatures remain wholly legible, as does every word of the text on both sides. This Green Back New Jersey has particularly bold color, and it's an issue that is immensely popular with this state's collectors. It's a note with a fair amount of claim to the Very Fine grade. Only five hundred notes were printed of this denomination. This is number 261. We've sold two examples prior to this one, a Fine in 1996 for $1870 and a Very Fine in January of 2002 for $2300.
