    Pennsylvania April 20, 1781 5s PMG About Uncirculated 55.
    From our September 2009 auction of the Midnight Ride Collection where we described this note, "The pence denominations of this issue are seen with some frequency, and they are even available in the highest grades. The shilling and pound-denominated notes are a different story entirely, with a Newman price of $400 even in VG. Higher grades are almost never seen, and although they are priced up through Uncirculated, few collectors will ever see one, let alone own one. This note is priced at $1500 in XF, a number that it should easily surpass." At that sale it sold for a disappointing $720, a figure that should be doubled this evening. It remains Top-Pop at PMG and PCGS combined.

    Estimate: $1,250 - up.
