||Colony of New York February 16, 1771 10 Shillings Fr. NY-162. PCGS Fine 15 Apparent. Though counterfeiting was a problem on the issue, note raising was not with the use of plate devices. Note on this the "Ten" is used instead of a Roman numeral at lower left; "X.S." is to the left of the Arms, and "10s" is above the counterfeit warning. Gallaudet engraved the border cuts and Arms used on the series. Printed by Hugh Gaine on thin laid paper. PCGS notes "Edge Splits and Tears; Stains," but the note is full and the margins are wide.
