    Description

    Virginia July 17, 1775 £2 Gem New. A spectacular piece of Colonial currency. This note is margined all the way around and has all its original embossing fully intact. It's a scarce issue in all grades, particularly in the higher denominations. Neither Friedberg nor Newman lists this note above Very Fine, with the Friedberg reference noting that it is very rare in uncirculated condition. Colonial Currency has made great strides in popularity over the past eighteen months, but the value of truly important notes such as this one still lags far behind comparable rarity in other currency categories.
