New Jersey October 20, 1758 6 Pounds Fr. NJ-127. PCGS Fine 15. The Ninth War Issue 6 pounds, like the June 14, 1757, issue, also had only 250 examples authorized. It appears to be another extreme rarity with few recorded auction appearances and is thought to be Rarity 7 (4-12 known). The face is similar to previous 6-pound notes, with the large Royal arms at the left and red text details. The color back returns, but in brown and used only on this issue. The leaf details and color are sharp. The ink is not oxidized (an "odd purple" color was referred to in the first DuPont sale catalog example that realized $330 in April 1993). The Boyd note was a bright Fine to Very Fine example sold as Ford III: 706 for $3,220. Lacking faults and boasting excellent color and details. This uniquely styled is a prize New Jersey bill and generations have recognized its rarity. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society
