    Rhode Island May 1786 1s PCGS Superb Gem New 68PPQ.
    PCGS has yet to publish a Colonial Population Report so the best we can do is interpolate PMG's data which is generally very similar. PMG has graded 36 examples of this issue and denomination with two notes graded 67 and none higher. We rather suspect that this note is alone at the 68 level at PCGS. This issue does come nice and there are many 65s and 66s from both services, but at this grade level, it is an entirely different animal. Simply stunning with huge margins all around and embossing deep enough for paintball players to duck behind. An incredible note sure to please its new owner whatever the cost.
