Denomination 3d
Description Province of Georgia 1762 2 Shillings 6 Pence Fr. GA-36. PCGS Very Fine 20 Apparent. All notes from this early series are very rare to extremely rare. Nearly every note from the issue we have handled has been from the Newman Collection. The obligation for the denomination 2 shillings 6 pence has changed to "This indented Bill of Credit" from the simpler "This Bill." Very pleasing from the face despite some normal faults seen on early Colonial notes. This lesser denomination type has ornamental borders all around, the left side indent design, and an ornamental cartouche at the lower right enclosing the written denomination. Noted by grading with "Splits" and as "Backed." Fairly bright overall, and with four sharply accomplished signatures. Superior in many regards to the Boyd Collection note (Stack's Ford Part III: 755, May 11-12, 2004, at $1,093) that had five sharply penned signatures. This is the first of the type we have cataloged here, and it is a significant Georgia rarity. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society, Heritage Auctions Internet Sale (5/2017). (Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions, Realized $969.38.
