    Extraordinarily High Grade Handwritten Date May 4, 1778 Virginia

    Virginia May 4, 1778 (Dates Handwritten) $5 PMG About Uncirculated 50. This issue with the handwritten dates is far rarer than its engraved date counterpart. All eight denominations are priced in Newman only through the VF grade where they are valued at $2000. This is only the second example that we have handled in any of our sales. The example we sold prior to this one was a PMG 20, which is the only other piece that PMG has graded. Only when highly important collections reach the market does the opportunity to acquire notes of this rarity present itself. Number 231 of only 1000 printed, and a treasure for the Virginia specialist.
