    Virginia March 4, 1773 £3 PMG Very Fine 25 Net.
    The notes from this issue are physically large and were printed on thin, weak paper in London from plates engraved by Harry Ashby. The printing did not reach Virginia until September 1773. That was when they were completed, signed, indented, and released. The issue is rare in all grades, and prohibitively rare in high grade. This note is totally intact save for a very minor area of ink burn at the right of center and edge damage that is far removed from any design features. The £3 was printed in the smallest quantity of the four denominations for this issue, with only a meager 500 examples. Interestingly, the signer of this note was one Bartholomew Dandridge, brother of our first First Lady Martha Washington and brother-in-law of George Washington.
