||Maryland December 7, 1775 $1/6 Fr. MD-80. PCGS Choice About New 55PPQ. This is another stunning condition rarity Maryland note. Normally, notes from this type average Fine or so, that being perhaps generous. This is the finest example of any denomination we have encountered from the series. The face border cuts were engraved on copper and the notes were printed by Frederick Green, who also signed some notes on this series. The back emblem is deeply printed and well detailed. This issue is not priced above Extremely Fine in Newman. Very likely never to meet its upgrade. A gorgeous Maryland rectangular format note and a great condition rarity. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
