    Description

    Delaware January 1, 1776 20s Fine.
    Only 12,000 of these 20 Shillings notes were printed. This issue was printed on the same paper that was used for Continental Currency. John McKinly, Thomas Collins, and Boaz Manlove were the signers of this note, although the red ink signature of Collins has faded. Interestingly, Manlove signed about half of the notes of this issue before he switched sides and became a Loyalist. An arrest order was issued for him, but he and several others were able to evade arrest and eventually they reached the Preston, a British ship in Delaware Bay in March 1777. Manlove's property was confiscated and sold by the state. An approximate quarter inch edge tear is noticed.
