    Virginia April 5, 1759 £3 PCGS Apparent Very Fine 25.
    This is the only example graded at either service and the one and only piece we have seen. The massive Ford-Boyd collection sold across several sales had two examples from this extremely rare issue, a 5s in Good which realized $1150 in January 2005 and a £5 in Fine which realized $3220 in May 2004. This note has been assigned the Apparent grade for missing corners, stains, edge splits, and tears. But for all that, it remains reasonably attractive and the two signers Robert Carter Nicholas and Peyton Randolph are both clean and clear. As with most notes of this era, the back is covered with endorsements. Virtually impossible to estimate, but no collector to our knowledge has an example of this note.
