Paid In "Continental Dollars" Revolutionary War Receipt

May 12, 1782-Dated Revolutionary War Period. Connecticut. Manuscript Receipt Document, Stating Paid "the sum of Seven Hundred and Ninety Continental Dollars." Choice Very Fine.

This is an original Connecticut certificate of receipt, measuring 2.25" x 8" which reads, in full: "I do certify that on the 12th of May 1782 I recvd of Mary Withy the sum of Seven Hundred and Ninety Continental Dollars in Part of Isaac Edwards Class fines and Poundage for the year 1780 - Fred'k Engle." This piece is docketed on the back: "Isaac Edwards Acct" written on laid period paper, with partial "Crown" watermark. A nice item showing a rather large payment having being paid and accepted in Continental Dollars.
