    Ultra-Rare April 5, 1759 Virginia

    Virginia April 5, 1759 10s Very Fine. This is the first early Virginia we have ever had the opportunity of offering in all of our 30+ rare-currency sales. The note is in beautiful shape for this early issue. The center fold has been lightly strengthened, as have two of the corner tips, but the body of the note and all the text, as well as the signatures, are legible and perfectly natural. Early Virginias are virtually never seen, and this extremely important piece will be eagerly sought by this colony's specialists, most of whom do not own a single example dated prior to 1773. Needless to say, this entire issue is unpriced in both Newman and Friedberg. We would not be at all surprised if this irreplaceable treasure were to realize . . .
