Description

    Continental Currency February 17, 1776 $1/6 PMG Choice About Unc 58.
    The February 17, 1776 small denomination notes are fascinating, with Benjamin Franklin designed motifs on both sides. The face has the Fugio design used on the Continental Dollars, and later the 1787 Fugio coppers, with sundial and MIND YOUR BUSINESS. The backs correspond to the coin designs with WE ARE ONE in the center encircled by AMERICAN CONGRESS, with a glory of rays around. These elements are all encircled by linked chains, bearing the names of the original thirteen colonies, joined together. The Fugio notes should be considered Fractional Continental Dollars. The smaller vertical format with this design has an excellent layout. The $1/6 is the lowest denomination of four, printed on double-pane sheets of twelve, using three letter positions per denomination. This is a sharp looking Plate C note with bold printing and a nicely accomplished signature. Complete margins are on all sides. There are a handful graded higher, but this truly attractive AU should prove affordable and certainly has a wonderful appearance.


    Estimate: $1,750 - up.
