    Description

    New York April 18, 1786 10s PMG Good 6 Net.
    All of the late date series from New York are rare to exceedingly rare. The April 18, 1786 series uniface notes printed on laid paper by S. Loudon are no exception. There are several notes known from the authorized denominations, but these include counterfeits and at least one raised bill. The face style is similar to 1775-1776 notes with Excelsior Arms within fancy border cuts. The imprint is at bottom center. Signed and issued, it is one of 20,000 authorized. This note has obviously served its role and has seen extended time in circulation. It did not escape the experience without suffering some damage. It has been severed and rejoined by backing the entire note, with some loss of paper along the centerfold. Rarity will, however, help overlook some of these problems as the vast majority of the design elements are still clear.
