    Description

    New York February 16, 1771 5s Very Good.
    A note that retains appeal despite its problems. This five shillings note is well printed and most of the design elements remain attractive. Pieces missing, rough margins, and several tape repairs on the back are observed. The note has respectable margins overall and the signatures of all three signers can still be seen although they have faded. This issue was heavily counterfeited, however there are no diagnostics for this denomination in the Newman reference.
