    Description

    Pennsylvania Bank of North America August 6, 1789 1d PMG Choice Uncirculated 64. The population of these notes is very small, and this is the nicest one of these we have been able to offer. According to Newman, "Bank of North America Small Change Bills Payable in Specie were issued because of the 'Copper Panic' of July 1789, when circulating copper coin was refused." He goes on to say they were "printed by Benjamin F. Bache on paper furnished by Benjamin Franklin which had a polychrome or marbled edge on both sides."
