    Description

    Delaware January 1, 1776 20s PCGS Choice New 63PPQ. Beautifully printed, very nicely margined, and with a bold serial number and signatures, this note has eye appeal. John McKinly, Thomas Collins, and Boaz Manlove were the signers of this lovely example. 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 reached the Preston, a British ship in the Delaware Bay in March 1777. His property was confiscated and sold by the state. This issue was printed on the same paper that was used for Continental Currency. Irish-born James Adams printed the Delaware issues from 1760-77. Until 1775, he was the only printer who settled in Delaware. He previously worked in Philadelphia for Benjamin Franklin & David Hall for seven years.
