Finest PMG Certified January 15, 1776 Rhode Island 20s
Colony of Rhode Island. January 15, 1776. Twenty Shillings. Split and corner repairs. PMG Net graded Very Fine-25.
Fr. RI-226. A superior quality "1776" date Revolutionary War note of this elusive Rhode Island typeset issue. This note has four full obverse margins, the left being particularly large. All of the text is clear and fully readable, upon clean pleasing period laid paper with the designs distinct. Rich red and brown ink signatures add to this notes superior eye appeal. Only 6,000 notes were issued in 1776, and all recalled redemption back into the Treasury by 1778. An important Colonial / Rev. War Rhode Island rarity.
