Click an Image to Reduce It
Current Money of Virginia, May 6, 1776, One Pound or Twenty Shillings, “FOWR CROWNS” Major Misspelling Error Type, Very Fine.

Fr. VA-96. An Virginia “ERROR” type note on this important 1776 Revolutionary War issue date currency. One of only 1,000 notes were authorized issued. This very collectable major “key” Error type has the “FOWR CROWNS” misspelling in its printed text within the right side border design. Friedberg and Newman reference books both record this Error note as “Rare” with no values listed in any grade, just displaying dashes due to rarity. Otherwise, this note’s design style appears much like many on this issue. An important “Error” rarity, lacking in most Colonial Virginia currency collections. Even in circulation, having some roughness at the two bottom corner tips, nicely Signed in brown ink by Richard Morris and George Seaton. A major “FOWR CROWNS” listed Error Type evenly circulated and pleasing.
