Description Pennsylvania April 29, 1780 20 Shillings Fr. PA-228. PCGS Extremely Fine 40 Apparent. A vibrant "Island Money" pound note payable in "Silver Dollars." The best we have seen and perhaps the finest known. It is vastly superior to the Boyd example sold in Ford XV nine years ago for $3,450 ("Very Good"). This visibly crisp note has a wide sheet edge at the bottom. PCGS does note some "Stains; Minor Mounting Remnants on Back." The stains are confined to one corner, obscured by the face printing. A perfect type note from this rarely offered series. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society Realized $1703.75. Newman VII (Heritage Auctions, 10/2015), lot 18192.
