    Near Gem September 2, 1775 $2 "Two Storks" Type

    New York September 2, 1775 $2 PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    This is an available issue from New York, but becomes a great condition rarity when it appears in this quality. Printed on sturdy paper, on both sides by John Holt, with his imprint on the back. The face shows a fancy border and text with New York Arms. This lovely example is also blessed with two visible signatures of Abraham Brinckerhoff and Theodorus Van Wyck. On the back, border cuts enclose the denomination. The imprint is shown, and a circular emblem with two storks encircled by a Latin motto (translates to "Fortunate for itself and its parents"). Nearly Top Pop at PMG, with only a 64 EPQ graded finer. These are the only two uncirculated pieces they have seen after fifteen years in business, with the next closest earning an EF 45 grade. The only other piece that we have sold in comparable grade was the Newman note. That PCGS Very Choice New 64PPQ sold for $2,585 back in 2015. This is another note that would be an ideal fit into a top-flight Thirteen Colony set.
