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 October 1st 1773. This one was worth the amount of two shillings. Yes that's right at that time currency was still figured in English or Spanish values. In the upper left hand corner it has the image of the Penn family crest of arms. It was the Penn Family for which Pennsylvania was named. It also has the wording "MERCY JUSTICE". On the back of the note it has the attractive scene of the house and farmland. 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 also has the wording that reads "To Counterfeit is Death" Now how is that for a way to stop counterfeiting. The note measures approximately 3.5 inches by 2.75 inches in overall size and is in attractive displaying circulated condition. This note was graded by the PMG Company and they gave it a "Very Fine" condition grade. 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.
