    Description

    Pennsylvania March 20, 1771 10s Francis Hopkinson Signature PMG Choice Very Fine 35.
    Most unusually for this issue, the note which bears an extremely dark clear signature of Francis Hopkinson is in a comment-free holder. Hopkinson was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence from the state of Pennsylvania and his signature particularly when it has the strength of this current example is highly collectible to historical autograph collectors and political collectors as well as currency collectors. We have handled notes in technically higher grade, but for sheer desirability, this is one of the finest examples we have seen. The red secondary color of the face of the note is extremely bright adding to its visual allure.
