    Description

    Pennsylvania March 16, 1785 15s PMG Choice Fine 15. Andrew Pettit, John Taylor, and George Leib signed this fifteen shillings piece. Printer Francis Bailey printed these notes on paper watermarked PENSYLVANIA in two lines. Bailey started his printing business in Lancaster in 1771 and later that decade published a newspaper in Philadelphia. Although Bailey originally used types manufactured in Germantown, he later produced types for himself and others. This final Pennsylvania issue is a scarce issue for all denominations as Newman prices all of them in VG at $500 each, at $800 in Fine, and at $1250 in VF.

    Estimate: $500 - up.
