    Scarce Red and Black 40 Shilling Denomination

    Pennsylvania April 3, 1772 40s PMG Extremely Fine 40 Net.
    A much scarcer denomination of this issue with a printing of a mere 5,000 as compared to 33,962 for each of the other eight denominations. Dark inks and strong signatures round out the description of this note that Newman values at $750 in VF. PMG notes Trimmed, Repaired but we assume they might be talking about some deftly concealed side edge nicks. We have only sold about a dozen examples of this denomination. A PMG VF 30 for $329 and a PCGS EF 45 for $646.25 are the other two most recent sales that we have had.
