    Description

    Maryland Continental Loan Office Bill of Exchange May 11, 1781 Choice New. Listed as US-95 in Anderson, this is 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 (a signer of the Declaration of Independence) as Treasurer of Loans, and by Thomas Harwood for the State of Maryland. Maryland is the second most difficult Colony from which to obtain these certificates. They're rated as a high R-7, which Anderson considers to be four to six known, in his book The Price of Liberty. Only Virginia, with three known, is rarer. This unsevered pair is in as-issued condition, with no problems of any kind. One of the finest pieces of Colonial-era fiscal paper that we have had the pleasure of offering.
