This is an authentic piece of Colonial American Currency. It is issued for the sum of four dollar. The front of the bill has the wonderful wording of "THE UNITED COLONIES" across the top. Also on the front of the note is the issuance date of November 29th 1775. This is one of the first notes that was made and issued under the fledgling United States Government. The early colonial currency is a wonderful thing to collect. Each note was hand designed with meaning to each image. This one has the image on the front of the note that shows a wild boar running into a spear. Around the image is the Latin motto "Aut mors aut vita decora" which translates to "Either death or an honorable life". On the front of the note it has the correct hand signed ink signatures and the hand numbered serial numbers. On the back of the note it has the design of the three leaves in the center. Below that are the printer's mark and the date of 1775. The note was printed by Hall & Sellers of Philadelphia. Before this partnership Hall printed currency with Benjamin Franklin. The note measures approximately 3 inches by 3.75 inches in overall size and is in very fine circulated condition and displays well. It comes in an acid free holder for display and preservation. This is a nice authentic early United States piece of paper money.
