    Description

    Virginia May 3, 1779 $50 PCGS Extremely Fine 40. Embossing is visible through the holder on this example. These notes were printed by John Clarkson and Augustine Davis on thin laid paper. The partners had a print shop in Williamsburg and were the Public Printer to the state from 1779-80, printing the Journals of the House of Delegates, until the seat of government was moved to Richmond. This well-printed $50 note was signed by H. Randolph, Edward Archer, and James Cocke. The large size of the note adds to the appeal. Edge splits were mentioned by PCGS.
