Virginia. June 8, 1757. Ten Shillings. PCGS graded Fine-12.

Fr. VA-9. A rarely encountered French and Indian War date Virginia 10 Shillings note of June 8, 1757. This example from the rare, early series of Virginia small format typeset bills. Signed by Benjamin Waller and Philip Johnson, both being clearly readable. This note rounded at the upper left, yet overall a very full note of the type, with superior paper central body for any early Virginia note. On par, or perhaps a little better in quality than the Boyd note that sold for $1,092 in January of 2005. Its PCGS Fine-12 holder states, apparent splits, tears, and damage, repairs, stains, backed, all of which is remarkably typical condition for these rare early issues and as shown. No values listed in any quality in the current (2008) 5th Edition of Newman, page 438. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
