    Pennsylvania May 1, 1760 £5 About New. This entire issue is unpriced above Very Fine in both Newman and Friedberg. Only 9900 Five Pound notes were printed, and this is number 5680. All three signatures and the serial number are bold and dark, and the note has virtually no signs of circulation other than a horizontal center fold. There are no restorations or repairs of any kind, and the note has even retained its original embossing. Benjamin Franklin printed this note, and it bears the "Printed by B. Franklin, and D. Hall. 1760" imprint. The colors are bright and original, and even the three-leaf nature print on the back is clear and sharp. A note of great numismatic as well as historical importance.
