    Description

    New York April 21, 1760 £5 PCGS Apparent Very Fine 25. This is a very rare early New York issue with a printing of a paltry 3000 notes. It is unpriced in any grade in the Newman opus. This is also true for the other two denominations of this 1760 issue with Newman mentioning that an AU £10 note went for $5750 in 2004. This is just our fourth £5 example to offer over the years and definitely the second nicest by far. Every word of the text, the New York coat of arms, and warning "Tis Death to counterfeit this Bill" are nicely printed. PCGS mentions multiple repaired splits. These repairs are skillfully done.
