    Pennsylvania March 10, 1769 1s PMG Choice About Unc 58.
    Notes from this issue are known as "Bettering House Money" because they were to be used in helping the poor. This is a very high-grade note from a series where most average Good to Very Good and are in frayed condition. Few notes from the issue exceed the condition of this example. A uniface, vertical format note with obligation texts and the Penn family arms enclosed in ornamental borders, the top with a column running sideways. Signed by Charles Thomson, who was Secretary of the Continental Congress from 1774-1789. Conservatively graded in our opinion. The note is nearly as made and only has some light handling. A Minor repair to ink erosion at the top of the "C" in Thomson's signature. Exceptional eye appeal and difficult to obtain in this choice condition.
