June 1, 1759-Dated French and Indian War Period, Colonial Pennsylvania Partly-Printed Document Signed, “Samuel Sanders his mark,” Private Issue Promissory Note Payable in “Pennsylvania Currency,” Complete with Wax Seal, Very Fine.

Rare Pennsylvania issued Private Issue Promissory Note Payable in “Pennsylvania Currency”. This Promisary Note is uniface, measures 4” x 7.5” with unusual large typeset text in bold black printed on central “Crown” watermark laid period paper. This is a 90-Day Promissory Note, is drawn by a “Samuel Sanders” who has Signed by his Mark, made to a William Ray of Cumberland County. This note is made payable in “Pennsylvania Currency” and witnessed by a Roger Walton. There is a trivial short marginal edge split and has a small piece of paper folded back and affixed to the Red Wax Seal, apparently making this transaction official. Here, Ray was evidently a regular Lender of money, as having this form Partly-Printed would indicate. Cumberland County is in central Pennsylvania, and was quite far in distance from main Philadelphia fiancial center and loan offices. Endorsed on the blank reverse, in full: “Saml. Sanders 11-16-11.1/2” (Amount paid).
