    Very Scarce 20 Shilling 1781 Colonial

    Pennsylvania April 20, 1781 20s PCGS Extremely Fine 40.
    The grading services have combined to have graded a mere six examples of this much better 20 shilling 1781 note. Only two others have passed through our auctions, the highest realization of which was the PMG AU 53 note that sold for $977.50 in our Midnight Ride Auction which we sold in a depressed 2009 market. In today's far more robust market, we would expect this solid EF note to match that figure.
