    New York August 13, 1776 $1/2 PMG Extremely Fine 40. A handsome XF, with excellent margins, good printing quality and bold signatures of Goodwin and Beekman. Abraham K. Beekman was a member of the famous Beekman family, for whom Beekman Place and Beekman St. in New York City are named. The Beekman mansion stood at what is now 51st Street and the East River from 1765 till 1874, when it was finally torn down. The British used the mansion as their headquarters for a time during the Revolutionary War. Nathan Hale was tried as a spy in the mansion's greenhouse and hanged in its orchard. The new Newman book values this note at $800 in Extra Fine, but the market is not quite there yet.
