||Continental Currency April 11, 1778 $6 Yorktown Issue Fr. CC-73. PCGS Gem New 66PPQ. This exceptional $6 Yorktown note is the top population note at PCGS. It is a bold and vibrant Gem. The inking on both sides is deep and the resulting printing is extraordinary, particularly on the nature print leaf in the back center, which, on its lighter background, looks three-dimensional. Wide and even face margins end in sharp corners. The back has near perfect centering with natural embossing evident over the immaculate surfaces. A top-flight Yorktown note. Ex: Eric P.
