    Rhode Island May 22, 1777 $1/3 PMG Choice Very Fine 35. A high-end Very Fine example of a much scarcer Rhode Island Issue. This note is number 17 out of 8490 printed. This 2s ($1/3) note is the highest denomination of this issue and was printed in the smallest quantity. Although it is indicated in the new Newman book as being the scarcest of its issue, it is not given the credit it is due. This denomination is truly rare. It is the first that HCAA has handled in any of its sales, and it is the only example yet graded by PMG. Colonial Currency is the last remaining area of mainstream American numismatics where rarities of this magnitude can be purchased on relatively ordinary budgets.
