    Description

    New York February 17, 1776 City and County of Albany 5s PCGS Apparent Very Fine 20.
    A rare official municipal issue that is a small uniface type set note printed on laid paper. The interesting obligation states that it is payable in, "Continental Currency." This piece has the same date as the third series of Continental Congress notes. This example is from an elusive issue with this being only the second time that we have been able to offer this denomination. In fact, all denominations for this issue are simply listed as "Rare" in the Friedberg reference. Center split repaired, pinholes, and small edge splits are mentioned on the third party label.
