    Description

    Continental Currency January 14, 1779 $35 PCGS Choice About New 55.
    The eleventh and final Continental Currency resolution included several innovations and changes. Red printing was added to the emblem and border on the face. The new border cuts used UNITED STATES OF NORTH AMERICA (this title was also used on the Amsterdam United States Loan office forms printed for use by John Adams's office). Notes were printed on watermarked paper. Sixteen denominations (including six new ones), using two arrays, were issued. Over $95,000,000 was authorized, much of which was necessary to retire note types that were heavily counterfeited, such as Yorktown notes. This $35 is the first of the added odd denominations. A plow in the field with the motto HINC OPES (Hence our wealth) is at the left, an emblem designed by Francis Hopkinson. Well signed, deeply printed, and with bright color. Better Continentals have certainly been on a price upswing in the past year.
