    Francis Hopkinson Signature- Signer of Declaration of Independence

    Pennsylvania March 20, 1771 15s PCGS Apparent Very Fine 30.
    A nice mid grade note, this piece has seen circulation but survived the experience without suffering any repairs or meaningful condition issues. It is well printed on bright paper with good colors. Most importantly, this note bears a strong clear signature of Francis Hopkinson, who later signed the Declaration of Independence. This increases the desirability of this note not only with currency collectors but also with autograph collectors, political collectors, and American history buffs. The small edge splits which PCGS mentions are at the centerfold well clear of Hopkinson's autograph.

    Estimate: $1,400 - up.
