Description Colony of Connecticut May 10, 1775 40 Shillings Fr. CT-182. PCGS About New 50 Apparent. The study of genuine and counterfeit Colonial comparisons greatly interested Eric. Often, a counterfeit type is rarer than the genuine; this is determined on a case-by-case basis. A very sharply printed Timothy Green impression and uncanceled note from the May 10, 1775, issue date. The denomination is below the top border cut, enhanced by the index hand on the left. The Arms appear within the obligation text, and William Pitkin's signature is easily discerned. Grading notes "Pinholes" and "Minor Stains," but the appearance is very pleasing, and embossing from the face is seen on the crisply printed back. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. From Newman X (Heritage Auctions, November 2018), lot 20018, realized $504.
