Description

    Pennsylvania March 20, 1771 10s Francis Hopkinson PMG Extremely Fine 40 Net. A superb example for the grade as it appears to have a technical grade of About New and has been blessed with gigantic margins. PMG mentions a restoration but it is wholly confined to the broad right margin. Francis Hopkinson was a signer of the Declaration of Independence from Pennsylvania and the new Newman states it adds $1,000 to the value of the note, which would be worth $400-$500 on its own merits. While John Hart notes are relatively common and a slew of John Morton notes have hit the marketplace recently, Hopkinson signatures are genuinely very scarce and are probably behind George Clymer in terms of scarcity. An astounding note that is destined for the finest of colonial currency collections and we are fairly certain that its new owner will be proud to display it to his friends.

    Estimate: $1,250 - up.
