Description

    Maryland Continental Loan Office Bill of Exchange May 11, 1781 Choice New. Identical but for date to the pair we offered in a collection of these Continental Loan Office notes last January. Listed as U.S. 95 in Anderson, it's an uncut pair consisting of a third and fourth of exchange made out for $18. Both notes from this vertical pair are signed by Francis Hopkinson as Treasurer of Loans and by Thomas Harwood for the State of Maryland. Maryland is the second-most difficult colony from which to obtain one of these certificates. They're rated as a high R-7, which Anderson considers to be four to six known, in his excellent book The Price of Liberty. Only Virginia, with one to three known, is considered rarer. This unsevered pair is in essentially as-issued condition but for some extremely minor edge tears at the top that do not reach any portion of the design. This lovely and valuable pair should create considerable bidder interest.
