Description

    Pennsylvania March 10, 1769 2s/6d PCGS Fine 15. This issue is known as "Bettering House Money," and according to Newman, it was "authorized by the February 18, 1769 Act for the relief and employment of the poor in Philadelphia." We have handled only a few of these over the years, the majority of which were very low grade. This half-crown note is certainly the full Fine that's been assigned to it, and it has a fair amount of claim to the VF grade. All three signatures are strong and the note is very well margined. It is priced at $1000 in Fine in Newman.

    Estimate: $600 - up.
