    Connecticut Treasury Office Transfer Certificate Jan. 14, 1790. Anderson CT 27. About New. The printed 1789 date has been crossed out and "1790" written above it in black ink on this example numbered 1846. These certificates certified the transfer of old notes for new notes, in this case the party involved was Capt. John Watson and the amount was £226, 3s. The back includes the notation "1846," representing the certificate number, and the signature of John Watson. A R4, 76-200 known, per Anderson's The Price of Liberty. However, this appears to be our first offering of a CT 27 certificate and is one of two offered this evening. A vertical fold is seen at center on this cancelled example along with a few small, light stains. An interesting piece of history.
