    Virginia May 7, 1781 $2000 PMG About Uncirculated 50 EPQ. This $2000 is the highest denomination of the final issue of Virginia notes. By the early 1780's, inflation had necessitated the issuance of higher-denomination notes. Prior to the July 14, 1780 issue, nothing higher than $100 had ever been issued in Virginia. The October 1780 issue included $500 and $1000 notes, and this final emission of May 7, 1781 issued four denominations of $1000 and above. This $2000 note has dark signatures, excellent margins, and "Exceptional Paper Quality" as noticed by PMG. Bolling Stark, John Lyne, and J. Hopkins were the signers. This is the only example of this Friedberg that has been graded by PMG to date.
