    Rhode Island September 5, 1776 $2 Very Fine-Extremely Fine. This issue is extremely scarce in all grades, with no examples priced higher than Very Good in either Newman or Friedberg. Both references give no prices at all above the $1 denomination, as the $2-and-higher notes were all printed in extremely small quantities and are virtually unknown. This $2 note is the only example we have ever seen, which is not surprising, as only 600 were printed. None of the advanced collectors that we've checked with has a $2 in his collection, and we can find no auction records of this $2 September 15, 1776 note in any grade. The note is absolutely problem-free with a few light folds, and there are no splits, tears or restorations. Colonial Currency is the only remaining area in U.S. Numismatics where a mainstream item that may well be unique sells for such an affordable price.
