Rare November 6, 1775 Three Shillings Rhode Island Note
Colony of Rhode Island. November 6, 1775. Three Shillings. Choice Fine.
Fr. RI-212. This pleasing note is far above average in its quality for the issue. There are some small, deft sealed edge splits and light overall circulation for the grade. It remains quite clean and free of major detractions. The strong red and brown signatures of Joseph Clarke and John G Wanton, along with the red serial number add to this notes appeal. There is a small contemporary notation at the bottom edge. All of the printed text is sharp and clear. An important rarity that is certainly missing in most collections.
