    Description

    Pennsylvania April 25, 1759 £5 PMG Very Fine 25. Incredible grade for the issue, which is generally found as a rag. The note was printed by Benjamin Franklin, and his imprint at the bottom of the back is clean and clear. Printed in black and red on both sides, which adds considerably to the eye appeal of this early Ben Franklin printed Pennsylvania issue. The issue is unpriced in Newman, but there is a notation that an example of this denomination also graded Very Fine realized $2530 in Stack's January 2005 sale.

    ‡ The owner placed a late bid on this unreserved lot and repurchased it, subject to applicable commission.
