Colony of New-York. November 1, 1709. 2 Ounces & 3 quarters of Plate, or 4 Lyon Dollars. Indented Bill. Fr. NY-9. PCGS Very Fine-25 Details. Repaired Edge Split, Minor Rust, Edge Splits. As illustrated.

Description: Laid paper. Serial No. 47. Signed by R. Walter, Rob. Lurting, Joh. Jansen,, and Joh. DePeyster. Uniface. Printed by William Bradford. 115mm by 152mm. An amazing beginning to an offering of New-York notes that ranges from the earliest notes of the colony, as here, right up through statehood after the Revolution. The PCGS qualifiers amount to nearly nothing, and the in-hand appearance bespeaks a far finer grade. Type B, with “Governour” spelling. “This series is extremely rare for any denomination,” noted the Ford writer. At the time of the Ford sale, the note was the first of its type ever sold by Stack’s, and one of only two the writer had seen in the better part of a lifetime as a paper money specialist. Just 168 notes of the denomination were authorized, and some may have gone unissued. Woodblock scroll indent at top. One of the stars in the Ford sale 19 years ago, and certainly a highlight in this catalog as well.

Pedigree: From Stack’s sale of the John J. Ford, Jr. Collection, Part III, May, 2004, Lot 609. (Ford Price Realized: $16,100)
