    Possibly Unique £3 1786 New Jersey PMG Very Fine 35 Net

    New Jersey 1786 £3 PMG Choice Very Fine 35 Net.
    This is the first time we have sold an example of this denomination from this final New Jersey issue. Printed by Isaac Collins, the State seal is very clear and distinct on the face in red, along with a blue notation of "Three Pounds." The back has a sage leaf with "SIC" in the stem which apparently is an abbreviation of "Sculpsit Isaac Collins." Boldly signed by Benjamin Smith and alternate James Ewing. The third party grading service has given it a net grade due to being previously mounted. The mounting marks show only at the left end of the back and are not at all distracting. The lower denominations from this issue are seen occasionally, although they are quite rare. The £3 and £6 are excessively rare, and this is the first example we have ever seen of this denomination. This is the only example ever seen by either grading service and we are unable to find any reference to another piece in any sale available to us. Unique is chancy when used about regular issue Colonial currency, but it may well apply here. Certainly unique to our best knowledge.

    Estimate: $10,000 - up.
