    March 4, 1773 £2 Virginia - The First We Have Sold and the Finest Graded

    Virginia March 4, 1773 £2 PCGS Apparent Very Fine 30.
    The first example of this note that we have sold and one of only two seen by both grading services combined. The second note which was graded by PMG is a Fine 15 and almost certainly a Net. This note is the only example seen at PCGS. Only 1,300 pieces were originally printed and the combination of this note's much larger size (approximately 5"X6") and extremely weak paper assured a very low survival rate. The Apparent grade has been assigned for "Restorations and Edge Splits and Ink Erosion." The restorations are extremely well executed and invisible to our eye. An incredibly important Virginia note bearing all of the key names in Old Dominion currency. Peyton Randolph and John Blair have signed the note and Robert Carter Nicholas has endorsed it on the back as treasurer.
