    Description

    Rhode Island May 22, 1777 $1/24 Choice New. A stunning example from this early Rhode Island issue that is as nice as any this cataloger can remember having seen in a long time. But for the left margin being a little tight at the bottom this note exhibits all of the paper quality of a superb gem. Mountainous embossing ranges across the entirety of the paper surfaces and the note is crisp and crackling fresh. The bold "Arnold" signature is pronounced as is the serial number. An AU sold in one of our sales quite some time ago for about $1,500 and this example is far superior to that one.
