    Rhode Island May 3, 1775 2s PMG Very Good Net 8. This is the first time that we have been able to offer this number and not surprising since the entire issue is not priced above VG in either Friedberg or Newman. In fact we have had only four previous appearances spread over a grand total of eleven denominations for the entire May 3, 1775 issue. This issue is rare because it was current for only seven months and then exchanged for the January 15, 1776 issue. The printings were also small with the 2s weighing in at a measly 6000 examples. The net grade is due to a "tape repair" on the back, but the note faces up much higher than the assigned grade and the John Cole signature is bold.
