Colony of Rhode Island, November 6, 1775, Nine Pence, Bill of Credit, PMG graded Very Fine-25.

Fr. RI-209. This 1775 early American Revolutionary War issued legal tender Bill of Credit note is quite well centered and nicely printed having superior eye appeal. This uniface printed note is attractive, the current (2008) 5th Edition Newman page 395 lists a generous value of $1,500 in Fine and $2,250 in Very Fine on this issue. The “Codfish” vignette in the top border design above the serial number is very clear. Its red and brown ink signatures of John G. Wanton and John Cole are sharp. The holder states repaired (which appears to be a sealed centerfold split seen only on its blank reverse). These early Rhode Island notes are currently very underrated especially in such pleasing affordable collectable quality. Considering their rarity, a great value.
