Red Printed Face April 12, 1757 New Jersey - 500 Printed
New Jersey. April 12, 1757. Three Pounds. RED Printed Face. Plate B. Conservation. Very Fine.
Fr. NJ-103. This New Jersey rarity is made popular due to its rarity and unusual full Red Printed face. Only 1,000 notes of this denomination were printed, of which only 500 would carry Plate "B." The three signatures are readable including, Samuel Nevill, Hugh Hartshorne and an unlisted signer S. Garison (sic). The face and back are both very well centered and quite clean having some light conservation and evenly circulated. Red printed text and devices, along with a clear plate letter "B" are seen on the face. The back is printed in dark black, which is bold and very clear for the grade. Two notes having been graded by PMG, the best graded Very Good-8. This note is a very fine example of this important "red faced" Colonial New Jersey rarity.
