Description Pennsylvania April 3, 1772 2 Shillings John Morton Signature Fr. PA-156. PCGS Very Fine 20. This is the fourth John Morton signature type offered here, and we note that only a collector with the stature of Eric P. Newman would have multiple denominations from a scarce Signer of the Declaration of Independence: quite an achievement. This is a two-sided horizontal format type with a nature print back. The bold Morton signature appears at the top of the signature block on this note; only honest wear is seen. Another excellent Morton note. The tremendous selection here provides a great opportunity. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society Realized $734.38. Newman VII (Heritage Auctions, 10/2015), lot 18186. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
