Circulated "1776" Revolutionary War Rhode Island Note
State of Rhode Island. September 5, 1776 $1/4. PMG graded Very Fine-20.
Fr. RI-243. A nice, evenly circulated example of this historic "1776" dated Revolutionary War note on Rhode Island. One of only 4,000 notes were printed. This pleasing note has four full, even margins and an impressive appearance. The holder states a net grade and restoration comment, which does not appear evident to the naked eye. The blank reverse side is perfectly clean and even in appearance and quite choice having no notations or detractions.
