    Description

    Georgia 1776 - Crown 5s PCGS Very Fine 30. The crown on this 5 shillings note was looked down upon as being unpatriotic and was later replaced with a light blue circular seal. This example is numbered 5180. The signers were Richard Wylly, James Habersham, and Nehemiah Wade. Scottish-born James Johnston, the official printer for the colony, was a Tory and during the American Revolution he chose to remain loyal to England. As a result, his business was confiscated and run by inexperienced printers resulting in simpler and less uniform designs and the creation of more varieties.
