    Rare 2 Pound Note - 1756 New York

    New York April 20, 1756 £2 PCGS Apparent Very Good 10.
    A true rarity but unrecognized as such by collectors. Friedberg simply calls it rare, and Newman does not show it with any price given. The 5L and 10L notes of this issue are seen occasionally, but these lower denominations are particularly rare. Only 1,000 of this £2 were printed; all the other denominations had between 2,000 and 4,000 printed. This note was missing from the Ford Collection and is the only example graded at either service. The Apparent grade is for "Splits, Repairs and Reinforcements," all of which are accurate, but the note faces up like a high-end Fine. We have never sold a 2L note but we are certain it will be well received.
