    Continental Loan Office Bill of Exchange Fourth Bill- $18 Jan. 11, 1782 Anderson US-95/MA-5B. PMG Very Fine 20 NET. Understandably net graded due to the amount of ink burn, this example is still certainly collectible due to the signature of Michael Hillegas, the first Treasurer of the United States. Hillegas, along with co-treasurer George Clymer, was responsible for the production and distribution of Continental Currency. Appleton signed for the state of Massachusetts on this note payable to William Bartlett. The MA-5B is listed as R4 in The Price of Liberty, 76 to 200 known.
