    High-Grade April 15, 1758 New York Note

    Colony of New York April 15, 1758 10 Pounds Fr. NY-154 PCGS Apparent About New 53.
    Only two denominations were printed for this Crown Point Expedition funding series. A rare type in any grade, but when encountered, they are usually split or in unstable condition due to the thick, coarse backs used. This is one of the finest known examples for the type and appears nearly as made from the face. The New York coat of arms at the right is bold. Borders are on three sides with ornaments along the bottom. The three signatures of Livingston, Clarkson, and Van Horne are clear. Very well margined and deeply printed. Noted with "Minor Mounting Remnants on Back." The similar Boyd collection note, Ford Part III: Lot 634, realized $1,955 in May 2004. Initially this was sold after being impounded in the Newman Collection for decades in our Newman Part VIII sale in 2017 for $1,800. This note is illustrated on the color plates in the fifth edition of the Newman reference on page 51. Underrated in this exceptional state of preservation.
