    Choice New 1776 <$6 New Jersey Colonial - Engraved by David Rittenhouse

    New Jersey March 25, 1776 £6 Choice New. A beautiful example of this extremely popular tricolor issue. Three of the margins are very nice; the top margin just touches the border design elements. The back centering is perfect. David Rittenhouse, who was to become the first Director of the United States Mint in 1792, did some of the engraving work for the plate of this £6 note. His name is worked into the red border design in extremely small letters that on this example can be clearly seen. This is number 2218 out of an original printing of only 3125. Est. 750up
