Click on an image to enlarge
This is an authentic piece of Colonial American Currency. It is issued for the sum of thirty dollars. The front of the bill has the wonderful wording of "Continental Currency" on the sides and "THE UNITED COLONIES" across the top. 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. What is cool about this note even more than being so early is that it was issued under an act of the Continental Congress while they were meeting in Baltimore and is so noted on the front. This is because at that time Philadelphia was occupied by British troops. 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 wreath on a tomb. Around the image is the Latin motto "Si recte facies" which translates to "If you act righteously". 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 two different designs. the emblem on the left shows a strong wind creating waves and bears the motto: "Vi concitate" (Driven by force); the emblem on the right shows the sun shining on sailing ships in a calm sea and bears the motto: "Cessante vento conquiescemus" (When the storm dies down we will rest). Below that are the printer's mark and the date of 1777. The note was printed by Hall & Sellers normally of Philadelphia but the location was left off of this and all subsequent colonial notes. 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 attractive displaying circulated condition. t was professionally graded by the PMG Company and they graded it as "Very Fine". It comes in their holder for display and preservation.
