    Pennsylvania June 18, 1764 20s PMG Extremely Fine 40 EPQ. The four different pence denominations from this issue are relatively available in high grade, but the larger size shilling denominations are far scarcer. This 20s note is the highest denomination from this last issue of Pennsylvania notes that bears the Ben Franklin imprint. The note is a real beauty, with good margins and three strong signatures. Thomas Clifford signs at the top in red, and he has also placed the serial number, as both the ink and his distinctive flourish match the number to his signature. Unpriced above XF in the newly released Fifth edition of Newman, where it is valued at $1500. To date, PMG has graded fourteen examples of this note, with this by far the highest. Eight of the fourteen notes grade VG-10, with others still lower.
