    Description

    Connecticut (1799) Hartford & New Haven PCGS New 62.
    The plates for this scrip used by the Hartford & New Haven Turnpike were engraved by Amos Doolittle in New Haven. Doolittle has been referred to as the earliest copper-plate engraver in America. There were six different denominations of Hartford & New Haven Turnpike scrip. This example is for 12ยข 5 mills in order "to pass one Gate, for each Loaded Waggon (sic), Sled, & P. Sleigh." It is signed in black ink by Baldwin. This is a historically important and very attractive note and it is also the only individual example we have offered of this denomination.
