    Description

    Pennsylvania May 1, 1760 20s Choice Very Fine. This piece is in incredible grade for the issue with three weak but visible signatures and every word of the text on both sides plainly visible. This note emanated from Benjamin Franklin's print shop in the city of Philadelphia nearly two decades before our Nation's independence. The "Printed by B. Franklin" imprint on the back is remarkably sharp. This is not a terribly rare issue, but easily 90% of the survivors grade VG or worse. This beauty is free of problems, but for some expert strengthening of its horizontal center fold at the right. A true significant rarity.

    Estimate: $1,250 - up.
