    Very Scarce 1760 Two Pound New York Note

    New York April 21, 1760 £2 PCGS Apparent Fine 12.
    We have only sold two examples of this denomination, the Newman note and the Midnight Ride example. This 1760 New York issue is much scarcer to begin with but typically we see 5L and 10L notes, not the lower denominations. PCGS has mentioned splits, tears, damage, missing corner, backing, stains. They make it sound far worse than it is as the signatures remain legible and the state Coat of Arms is rather bold. Both notes that we had sold previously were apparent-graded VF notes, selling for $705 and $920 respectively. The current example should approach that figure.
