    Description

    Pennsylvania Bank of North America August 6, 1789 3d Extremely Fine. According to Newman, "Bank of North America Small Change Bills Payable in Specie were issued because of the 'Copper Panic' of July 1789, when circulating copper coin was refused." He goes on to say they were "printed by Benjamin F. Bache on paper furnished by Benjamin Franklin which had a polychrome or marbled edge on both sides." This three-ninetieths of a dollar note has the bold multihued marbling covering about 75% of its back. A very nice example of one of the most important and historic issues. The note has a well -repaired split at the top half of its center fold, but it is otherwise problem free.
