    Description

    Pennsylvania April 3, 1772 40s PCGS Apparent About New 50. This is by far the scarcest denomination of the April 3, 1772 issue as it had a printing of only 5000, while the other eight values had a printing of 33,962 each. This example is numbered 4884 and has plate letter A. The 40s is also the only denomination of the issue that is printed in red and black ink. "J. Smither Sculp" is included in the top border. The signatures of Thomas Coombe, Samuel Pleasants, and Thomas Clifford remain bold on this well-printed example. The nature print on the back is attractive. PMG's current population report does not list any examples with a higher grade. Edge tears at right were mentioned by PCGS.

    Estimate: $1,300 - up.
