    Description

    Pennsylvania April 10, 1775 £5 PCGS Choice New 63.
    This is the scarcest of the 1770s Pennsylvania types, and the higher of the only two denominations in the issue. The Philadelphia City jail appears on the back in a well engraved, clear vignette. The issue was authorized to raise money for the construction of jails, and the Walnut Street Workhouse, as it was called, was selected for the vignette. This example is well signed and only held back from an even higher grade by its tight bottom margin.
