    Virginia March 4, 1773 £3 PCGS Very Fine 35.
    Extraordinary grade for the issue and one of the nicest pieces we have seen of any of the four denominations of these "London Notes." These very large thin paper notes were engraved by Henry Ashby of London and were printed in England. Priced in Friedberg at $3,750 for a VF 25 with higher grades simply listed as "rare." Newman prices these up through the EF grade and values them at $4,000. Only 500 notes of this £3 denomination were printed, the lowest figure for any of the denominations. For this issue, the quality of this piece cannot be over-emphasized. It is simply never seen this nice.
