    High Grade "Speedy Clothing of the Army" Virginia Note

    Virginia October 16, 1780 (For Clothing the Army) $400 PMG Very Fine 25 Net.
    The specially authorized "speedy clothing the Army" notes are a much rarer series on this enactment date than the printed back notes. These uniface notes are printed on very frail, thin paper with typeset text within an ornamental border. The majority of these rarities are very low grade, and most are missing pieces. This is a full, well-margined note, and though cited as net, it has only the comment "Repaired." The repair must be truly trivial, as we are unable to locate it after much searching. We have handled only one other, a PCGS 25 Apparent that we auctioned in our Newman Auction last April. That note, visually inferior to this one, realized $2702. This is a lovely type note from the series, and the obligation text evokes the sacrifices of the Continental Army. Number 525 of only 1500 printed.

    ‡ The owner placed a late bid on this unreserved lot and repurchased it, subject to applicable commission.
