This is an authentic piece of colonial currency from the 1700’s. These early U.S. currency pieces from the colonies that would make up our states are a true piece of history. This one was issued the Maryland colony. It is clearly dated in Roman Numerals from December 7th 1775. This one was worth the amount of a half dollar and notes that the exchange rate was four shillings and Six pence per dollar. Yes that’s right at that time currency was still figured in English or Spanish values. On the left center of the note it has the image of the seal of Maryland. On the back of the note it has the "SUB CLYPEO” motto that translates as "Under Divine Protection” in the center. It also has the amount of value and the printer’s name. The note was printed by F. Green of Annapolis. The note measures approximately 3-5/8ths inches by 2-3/4th inches in overall size. The note is in very attractive circulated condition.
