    Description

    Pennsylvania April 20, 1781 £5 Extremely Fine-About Uncirculated. An extreme rarity that is very underappreciated by all but the few Colonial Experts. This is the first £5 note from this issue that this cataloger has handled in forty years of dealing with Colonial notes. Both Newman and Friedberg indicate that this note is scarcer than the rest of the issue, but neither gives any assessment of the note's true rarity. We are aware of only one other example, and the note is on the want list of every current Colonial collector that we know of. In our opinion, notes like this make Colonial one of the most intriguing collecting areas, as major rarities can be purchased for modest sums, and great bargains can still be found with a little knowledge and a lot of patience.
