    New Jersey June 14, 1757 £3 PCGS Choice About New 55PPQ.
    This extremely rare note is serial number 242 of only 500 notes printed, of which only a mere 250 bear the Plate Letter "B". It is high condition census, if not one of the very Finest Known. This note is extremely well centered and sharply printed on fresh, clean crisp paper. Remarkably, it has excellent eye appeal with faint traces of original press text embossing within the paper, since 1757, attesting to its originality. The paper edges and corner tips are sharp and we can see no folds. The signature of Samuel Nevill at top is written in red, while those of Hugh Hartshorne and Samuel Smith are penned in rich brown ink. Any note on this June 14, 1757 issue is considered very rare, while the Three Pounds denomination is exceedingly rare. The 5th Edition Newman reference only lists values to Very Fine, none higher. This crisp note likely the finest quality obtainable, and is certainly missing in the most important of New Jersey and Colonial currency collections.
