State of Georgia. October 16, 1786. Five Shillings. Choice Crisp Uncirculated.

Fr. GA-129. An impressive 1786 Georgia Five Shillings note that full even margins providing perfect centering. Its bold vibrant appearance creates superb eye appeal. Vividly printed in deep black on bright fresh white special high quality watermarked laid period paper with two rich brown signatures; Geo(rge) Jones and W. Steele. Sharp margin edges and corner tips add to its appeal though there is a faint ancient hinge trace and a trivial short hard counting crease at the upper left corner both seen only from its blank reverse. This 1786 Georgia issue was printed in Augusta by John E. Smith and engraved “ABERNETHIE SCU(lptor)” printed at bottom within the border designs.
