    Description

    Virginia July 17, 1775 20s PCGS Apparent Very Fine 20.
    After the supply of new rag paper that was used for the small-size notes printed as part of this emission ran out, this larger paper left over from the September 1773 issue was used. Only 8999 of these 20 shillings notes were printed. Phil Johnson and John Tazewell signed this very attractive note while the back was countersigned by Robert Carter Nicholas, treasurer. Nicholas (1728-80) was a member of the House of Burgesses for ten years and assisted in drafting resolutions against the proposed Stamp Act in 1764. He became treasurer of the colony in 1766. Nicholas was conservative and did not favor independence from England. PMG mentioned internal repairs on this example. The repairs are minor and are not distracting.
