    Extremely Nice Vermont Half Crown With Only Minor Restorations

    Vermont February 1781 2s 6d PCGS Apparent Very Fine 30.
    The back design is also nicely centered. All Vermont notes are very rare and most known examples are in extremely low grade. The majority of the known examples have been pieced together from several different notes, often of different denominations. They were printed on thin, weak paper that quickly disintegrated in circulation. Their scarcity is due to the fact that only a single issue was emitted, and that issue, authorized in February 1781, had its legal tender status revoked after a little more than a year in circulation. Their scarcity also was increased by the fact that these notes retained their validity for tax payments, but the Vermont Treasury was denied the right to reissue the notes and they were burned when received for tax payments. The apparent grade has been assigned for restorations, which are ubiquitous on these weak paper Vermont notes. On this example, they seem to be a simple strengthening of the horizontal fold with no restorations of any of the design elements or signatures.


    Estimate: $12,500 - up.
