    Richmond, VA- Virginia Treasury Note $50 Aug. 12, 1861 Cr. 2 Jones VT02-08
    A lovely example of this exceptionally rare note which is the finest PCGS certified specimen we've seen to date. The best estimate is that fewer than thirty of these notes exist in all grades, although some authorities speculate that number may well be as low as twenty. The vignette at right is a portrait of John Tyler, who served as Governor of Virginia, U.S. Senator from Virginia, Vice President, and President of the United States. This is an absolute peach of a note, with the appearance of a fully uncirculated specimen. The overprint is a bright red, the penned signatures and serials sharp and bold, and the note truly looks as though it had emerged from the printer last night. PCGS About New 53PPQ, a beautiful piece fit for the very finest of collections.
