    Virginia October 5, 1778 $50 PCGS Apparent Extremely Fine 40.
    Valued in the current edition of Newman in Fine for $2000, with no higher grade listed. The note has a single split repaired on the blank back, which caused the apparent grade. Save for that, it is a lovely EF, and very rare at this level. A mere 9597 of these $50 notes were printed. The $50 and $100 denominations, the two highest printed, were indented typeset bills printed on large pieces of laid paper. This example measures approximately 3 3/8 x 6 inches and was signed by Jonathan Boush and Edward Archer. Ex: Midnight Ride Collection.
