Rare June 22, 1756 Six Pounds "GREEN Printed Reverse"
New Jersey. June 22, 1756. Six Pounds. "GREEN Printed Reverse." Very Fine.
Fr. NJ-100. Listed in Friedberg as "Very Rare." Only 625 notes were authorized. A very rare New Jersey colonial note and highest denomination from this series. This note is popular as it has the "Green Printed Reverse" printing which is fully oxidized in this instance. The face is boldly lettered and clear having rich deep red and black printed text and designs. The three signatures are present and readable. Only a few of the special Six Pounds, "Green Printed Reverse" notes are known and thus highly important. How many of the original 625 GREEN Printed Reverse notes printed in 1756 do you think survive today?
