Description Virginia September 1, 1775 20 Shillings James River Bank Form Fr. VA-82. PCGS Very Fine 35 Apparent. The second series of James River Bank forms were emitted when the lack of a paper supply required the unused forms from 1773 be placed into service. Thus, the design and style was the same as for the 1773 James River notes. This is a uniface type printed on laid paper with an indent into the ornamental calligraphic elements at the left end. A finely detailed ship vignette is at top left. Modest circulation, and with slight faults. Noted with "Small Edge Splits and Tears." A well-printed James River Form with excellent eye appeal. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society, Heritage Auctions Internet Sale (5/2017). (Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions, Realized $705.00.
