    Hartford & New Haven Turnpike 1799 6¢ 3 mills PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ. This is the variety printed in blue ink on thick paper. The paper is actually two maps glued face-to-face, portions of which can clearly be seen when the notes are held to a bright light. These scrip notes were used as passage tickets on the old Hartford & New Haven Turnpike, which is the current Route 91. This denomination pictures a horse and sleigh. Each of the denominations was pictorially keyed to the item that could pass for that amount. The engraving was done by Amos Doolittle of New Haven. This particular example was for Gate #1 and is signed in red by James Hillhouse. A historically important and very attractive note.
