This is an authentic piece of Colonial American Currency. It is issued for the sum of two dollars. The front of the bill has the wonderful wording of "The United States of North America" around the bottom and sides. Also on the front of the note is the issuance date of February 26th 1777. 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 grain being threshed with a flail with the motto "Tribulatio ditat" (It is enriched by affliction). On the front of the note it has the correct hand signed ink signatures and the hand numbered serial numbers. On the edge of the note it has "CONTINENTAL CURRENCY" and across the top it reads "THE UNITED COLONIES". On the back of the note it has the design of raspberry and two filbert leaves and is identical to the nature print used on earlier Pennsylvania currency. Below that are the printer's mark and the date of 1777. 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 heavily circulated condition with a tape repair and it is priced accordingly. It comes in an acid free holder for display and preservation. This is a nice authentic early United States piece of paper money.
