||Continental Currency April 11, 1778 $7 Yorktown Issue Fr. CC-74. PCGS Choice About New 58PPQ. This $7 Yorktown has exceptional eye appeal. It has deeply inked face and back printing, and the face margins are wide; that combination yields a note looking Gem New at first glance. The signatures of Ryves and Hardy are strongly accomplished. The nature print back showing grape and sage leaves in the center is well defined by Hall and Sellers on this example. Another beautiful note for any complete 102-type Continental Currency set, or to represent the important Yorktown series. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society, Heritage Auctions Internet Sale (5/2016).
