    Description

    New York- New York City February 20, 1790 3d PCGS Very Fine 25.
    Listed in both Newman and Harris, this was the highest of three denominations from this issue. According to Newman, the notes were authorized "to satisfy 'the want of small change' and to prevent the great losses 'to the poorer classes of citizens from the circulation of base coppers.'" The two and three pence notes were counterfeited in London. Hugh Gaine was the printer of the issue and the printed signature of City Treasurer Daniel Phoenix is seen. A rarity of R6, 6 to 10 known, was listed by Harris. The Ford Collection EF example brought $862 in 2007.
