||New Hampshire July 25, 1775 2 Shillings 6 Pence Fr. NH-135. PCGS Very Good 10 Apparent. There were only 4,000 notes authorized from this series and type.

The left indent design is slightly angled inward at the top. The printing clarity for the grade is attractive. Noted with "Center Split Sewn Together; Small Edge Tears." A rarity in any condition.
