    Description

    Pennsylvania April 10, 1775 £5 Gem New. An unsevered consecutive pair of £5 Workhouse notes. This is the scarcest of the 1770's 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. Both notes are fully signed, gorgeous examples whose value independently is just about the same as in their pair format.
