    New York April 2, 1759 £5 PCGS Apparent Very Fine 25. Unpriced in Newman, and a very rare issue. The only price record is another £5 note which Stack's sold in May of 2004. It was an AU and realized $4600. This note is a solid four-figure item. The 25 grade is technically accurate, but the eye appeal of this piece is far beyond that. The apparent grade is caused by a one-eighth inch split at the left that is visible only from the back. The note is signed by Marston, Barclay and Reade. Although Barclay and Reade Streets are named for Trinity Church rectors at the same time period, they are neither of these two men. A blood relationship is almost a certainty.
