Click an Image to Enlarge It
Colony of Rhode Island. January 15, 1776 Act. Three Shillings. PASS-CO graded Very Fine-35.

Fr. RI-222. Only 7,500 Three Shillings notes were authorized to be printed and were to be redeemed back to the Treasury by January 1781 and destroyed. This higher quality circulated note is far above average for this issue which is rarely seen above Good to Very Good. It has a very clean pleasing appearance with rich black printed text and designs. Uniface, the blank reverse is clean, free from any detractions. The holder notes light conservation, restored centerfold, (which was slightly splitting at its outer edges and sealed). Two signatures are very clearly readable being well written in brown and red ink. Low Serial number 656. An impressive Rhode Island “1776” date rarity.
