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 Pennsylvania colony. It is clearly dated from April 25th 1776. This one was worth the amount of 2 shillings and Sixpence. Yes that’s right at that time currency was still figured in English or Spanish values. In the center of the note on the right side it has the image of the seal of King George. During this turbulent time the King wanted people to know he was still in charge (he thought). On the back of the note it has the attractive leaf design in the center. It also has the amount of value and the printer’s name. The note was printed by Hall & Sellers of Philadelphia. Before this partnership Hall printed currency with Benjamin Franklin. It is interesting that at this same time Hall and Sellers was printing the first colonial money. How’s that for hedging your bets! The note measures approximately 3.5 inches by 2.75 inches in overall size and is in attractive displaying well circulated condition. It comes in an acid free holder for display and preservation. This is a nice authentic early piece of paper money from a colony of the future United States.
