Scarce New Jersey January 9, 1781 One Dollar Note Signed by David Brearley U.S. Constitution Signer
DAVID BREARLEY (1745-1790). Delegate to the U.S. Constitutional Convention and Signed the U.S. Constitution on behalf of New Jersey, Revolutionary War Officer, New Jersey Supreme Court Chief Justice.
Fr. NJ-201. State of New Jersey. January 9, 1781. One Dollar. Signed "D Brearley", PCGS graded Very Fine-30. David Brearley's signature is very large, measuring near 1.75" long, nicely written in very light red ink which has faded yet remains legible, and is designated as: Apparent minor stains on back. This issue in notorious for its notes being poorly aligned and badly trimmed, whereas this note has excellent centering with very large to huge margins on all four sides. A superior example.
