||G. S. L. City, (U.T.) - Printed Valley Note $1.00 Jan. 20, 1849 Rust 73 Nyholm 98. PCGS Choice About New 58PPQ. These small typeset notes replaced handwritten "White Notes" and were backed 80% by gold dust. A very simply made note on thick white paper stock designed to receive an impression of the Seal of the Twelve Apostles, it was designed by Brigham Young and John Taylor while at Nauvoo. Typeset in six lines by Young and Thomas Bullock. The note is signed by N. K. Whitney, Thomas Bullock and Heber C. Kimball as officers; above right is the signature of B. Young. Not numbered and it is technically a remainder. It shows a very bold seal impression and minimal handling. This is a popular series, especially so with the B. Young signature. The handling is miniscule and has the appearance of Printed Valley Notes that routinely sold for $2,000 just a few years back. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
