Continental Congress Currency, February 17, 1776, One Third of a Dollar, Plate “C”, with Benjamin Franklin “FUGIO” (Time Flies) Design and “AMERICAN CONGRESS / WE ARE ONE”, Choice Extremely Fine.

Fr. CC-20. A nice example of this historic 1776 Revolutionary War issued papwer money currency note by the Continental Congress, with its iconic Benjamin Franklin inspired “FUGIO” (Time Flies So Mind to Your Business / Sundial) Design. This $1/3rd note has light circulation and is attractive for the grade, as shown. The face side has excellent centering with four full margins and bold printing. The reverse is a bit softer, yet all details on the “AMERICAN CONGRESS / WE ARE ONE” plus all 13 linked States are clear and fully readable. Simply a nice circulated high quality collectible “FUGIO” note.
