Current Money of Virginia. June 8, 1757 Act. Twenty Shillings. Genuine. PCGS graded Fine-15.

Fr. VA-10. A very rare early French and Indian War date Virginia “Genuine” issued June 8, 1757 20 Shillings note on this series. Although it has some flaws, it is a complete and full note. Overall, uniformly toned with signatures faded. Its PCGS Fine-15 holder notes: splits; stains; tape repair; small paper pull on face (which appears basically accurate and typical of any notes on these early issues). No values listed in any quality in the current (2008) 5th Edition of Newman, page 438. Only a Counterfeit 20s sale record from May 2004 in “Good” at $977 is provided, whereas this current “Genuine” PCGS Fine-15 is significantly more desirable and valuable. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
