Scarce May 7, 1781 Virginia Twelve Hundred Dollars Note Printed by John Dunlap of Philadelphia PASS-CO AU-50

Treasury of Virginia Act. May 7, 1781. Twelve Hundred Dollars. Apparent restoration, signatures and serial number enhanced. PCGS graded About New-50.

Fr. VA-223. This very high $1,200 denomination note has four margins that provide nice centering. The text and designs are well printed and distinct, in black ink upon white period laid paper. The signatures and serial number are all clear and easily readable. There are some prior mounting traces along both edges on the blank reverse with deft sealed edge splits at center. This historic issue is printed by John Dunlap of Philadelphia, who is also famously known for having printed the the very First Broadside copies of The Declaration of Independence in 1776. The unique border design of the left margin shows a device of a Sun with "human" facial features, a Moon in partial eclipse (also with a human face), plus Thirteen Stars within a surrounding field. It is particularly rare because in the subsequent Act of November 1781, this notes legal tender status was to be terminated, its value to become worthless, on October 1, 1782. In that, it is truly remarkable that any of these notes still survive and is far more valuable to collectors today!
