    Only 250 Examples Printed

    New Jersey October 20, 1758 £6 PCGS Fine 15.
    An extremely rare color note printed with a full "Brown Back". It is an extreme rarity with just a few recorded auction appearances and is thought to be Rarity-7 (4-12 known). Only 250 Six Pound notes were issued. They were all to be recalled back into the Treasury and become invalid for circulation after October of 1764. This rare highest denomination note has a multicolor red and black face, having clear text and details for the grade. The reverse is printed in Brown, a unique color used here only, and not for any other Colonial issue. The brown color is distinct and different from the standard black of other issues and it is quite clear and well defined for its grade on this note. The signature of Joseph Yard is bold, and A. Johnston is also written in brown ink. The faces on the two central Suns are sharp in detail. An excellent and rare opportunity for Colonial Currency and New Jersey specialized paper money collectors to acquire such a rare note. The leaf details and color are sharp and the ink has stayed true and has not oxidized. The Boyd note was a bright Fine to Very Fine example sold as Ford III, lot 706 for $3,220. This unique "Brown Back" rarity is a prize for New Jersey note collectors.
