First Continental Currency Issue $30 Highest Denomination
Continental Congress. May 10, 1775. Thirty Dollars. First Philadelphia Issue. Crisp About Uncirculated.
Fr. CC-10. A scarce $30 Highest Denomination on this First Philadelphia Issue shows only light handling and some faint scattered tone on its reverse. There is a small thread within the paper, as made at the lower right reverse corner that should not be confused as fold or crease, and it is crisp. Signed in brown by "Jn. Shee" and "J. Laurence." Technically Crisp About Uncirculated, quite pleasing having sharp margins and corner tips.
