    January 2, 1775, 5s, Connecticut, CT-175, VG. The overall grade of this piece is not at all impressive, but the grade is perhaps the least interesting fact about this note. It has been slit cancelled and is torn into three or four pieces, but has been sewn back together, using a page from an old Bible as backing. It was obviously backed before it was cancelled, and the page from the Bible is of contemporary style. This note likely represents an eighteenth century attempt to preserve the life of a piece of currency, and to hold it together for future use in circulation.
