    Virginia March 4, 1773 £3 PMG Very Fine 25 Net.
    PMG has graded only five examples of this note, with only two, both 35s, above this beautiful 25. The net grade is for ink burn, which is so minor that calling it out can only be looked at as silliness. We are virtually certain that this note was graded before the new manager at PMG finally reigned in the net-happy graders. They still would correctly mention the ink burn, but we are quite confident this note would no longer be net graded. It is one of the more beautiful pieces we have seen from this entire issue with its jet black inking, clearly written fill-ins and paper that very closely approaches the tone it had the day it was printed.
