Click an Image to Enlarge It
Georgia. 1773. Twenty Shillings. Fully Signed and Issued. Printed in Red and Black. Large Format. PCGS graded Very Fine-35.

Fr. GA-48. This vivid colorful red and black printed note, is from a rare “single denomination” of Twenty Shillings issue. There are no other denominations. Only a small number of these notes were authorized issued and this example is both fully issued and carries all seven signatures. These seven signers are very clear, well written and legible including; N(oble) Jones (boldly embellished vertical signature) and the signature of his son, N(oble) W(imberly) Jones (seen at the bottom of the left row of signatures, he would later go on to serve as a Delegate from Georgia to the Continental Congress in 1781-82), James E. Powell, William Young, Joseph Clay, Thomas Shruder and Sam(uel) Farley complete the signatories. This attractive large format note was once folded to four quarters, likely to fit into a Colonial era wallet. Its PCGS VF-35 holder notes repaired splits and tears. These are reinforcements, nicely placed thin fiber tape on the vertical centerfold on the blank reverse, as shown. The blank reverse side is very clean with one small notation “10”. A similar quality note is illustrated in the current (2008) 5th Edition of Newman, page 137 for this Georgia currency issue. The only value provided records the sale price of an Unissued “RM” “Remainder” graded (raw) Very Fine, which sold in May 2004 at $2,990. Overall, this current note is attractive with superior eye appeal, in excellent quality, plus is fully signed and issued.
