More About this Item


Description: New York Currency Rare September 15, 1755 Twenty Shillings New York Note Only 1,000 Printed New York. September 15, 1755. Twenty Shillings. Appearance of Very Fine. Fr. NY-141. This exceedingly rare early New York Colonial currency issue note is one of only 1,000 printed, and of which all were designated to be returned back into the Treasury by November of 1761 to be redeemed. This example has excellent centering and a very bold, deep rich black printed face with the eye appeal of Very Fine, with a blank reverse side. Conservation and repair. There are scattered moderate repairs to some splits, the centerfold area, among other surface portions, where some text has been conserved. The signatures and serial number have worn, but with an appearance that is rather attractive. A remarkable rarity of which only a handful of notes are known to exist for all denominations. Missing in virtually all New York Currency collections.
