||New York The City and County of Albany June 22, 1775 10 Shillings Fr. NY-171.3. PCGS Very Fine 20 Apparent. This is an extremely rare official municipal issue. The series was not in DuPont, the foremost collection of Colonial private notes ever formed. Many of his private issue notes plated in Newman are still unique pieces. The Boyd note of this denomination, the Newman plate note, is bit finer and has a visible serial number. Uniface and printed on laid paper, this is a wide format, typeset note. The left end has flourishes, and ornamental borders are on the other three sides. Three signatures as authorized, Abraham Yates, Jr. (faded), Jacob Lansing, Jr. and Jacob C. Ten Eyck, both well penned. A charming note. The Boyd note was sold in Ford Part XV for $4,312. Designated Apparent with noted "Splits and Repairs; Minor Stains; Missing LR Corner," but the note still has much to offer and the corner is neatly shaved off. Another great rarity found only in advanced collections such as this. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
