    New York April 21, 1760 £5 PCGS Apparent Extremely Fine 40.
    An example from a very rare early New York issue printed on thin paper by William Weyman, consisting of only three denominations, with a printing of a mere 3,000 notes for the £5 denomination. None of the notes are priced in the most recent edition of Newman's The Early Paper Money of America. However, the reference does include a notation that an AU £10 note went for $5,750 in 2004. We have only handled a few examples of this denomination over our many years in business. Every word of the text, the New York coat of arms, and warning "Tis Death to counterfeit this Bill" are well printed on this note. PCGS assigned the Apparent grade due to "Restorations; design and signatures redrawn." The only other quality example we have sold of this denomination was a PCGS Apparent VF 25 that topped the $600 mark in 2010. This is the finest example we have sold and we believe it to be the finest graded note from this series. Rare and attractive.

    Estimate: $400 - up.
