    New York May 31, 1709 10s PMG Fine 12 NET. This is the second variety of 1709 10s note, with Governor spelled, "Governour." Only 500 notes were printed. These 1709 New York notes are the only extremely early Colonial notes that are somewhat available, due to a small hoard of high-grade pieces. This note clearly saw some circulation and is not part of the hoard. PMG has net graded the note for a tape repair, which is on the blank back, very nearly invisible, and reinforces the partially split center fold. Well signed, and essentially problem free save for the mentioned repair and a stain to the right of the signatures. Priced at $4000 as a Fine in Newman, which seems a touch conservative.
