    Extremely Rare Early Virginia

    Virginia March 11, 1760 £5 PCGS Apparent Very Fine 35. When we last sold this great piece in January of 2006 we described it, "This is bar none the single rarest Virginia note that CAA has handled in our 40+ sales. It's the first Virginia note dated prior to 1771 that we have handled. All early Virginias are excessively rare, and to have one available in high grade is an opportunity that no serious collector of this colony's notes can afford to let pass. The note is well margined, boldly signed and problem free save for extremely minor edge splits. Truly rare Colonial Currency is one of the most overlooked and underpriced areas in numismatics. It can be decades between opportunities to buy a note of this caliber." At that time it realized $5520, a figure that should be well eclipsed tonight. It now resides in a PCGS 35 Apparent holder that mentions a repaired edge tear.
