    Pennsylvania March 1, 1769 8s PMG Choice Fine 15. Prior to this sale, we had not offered a single example from this issue. This note is also the only piece from this issue that PMG has graded. Only four denominations were made, with a total printing for all four of 9000 pieces. The two highest denominations account for seven thousand of those 9000. The 8s that we offer here and the 12s both come from original printings of only one thousand pieces. This note is a solid Fine, with absolutely no problems. All three signatures are wonderfully clear, as is the serial number. Even the back of the note is consistent with the Fine 15 grade, and backs in this era were invariably weaker than the faces. Only when highly important holdings reach the market do collectors have the opportunity to purchase pieces of this magnitude. And only in Colonial Currency are pieces of this extreme rarity available for about half the $4500 our government will give you for your old clunker.
