    New Jersey February 20, 1776 30s Very Fine. Although the signatures are not bold, they are clearly those of John Hart and Samuel How. Notes were intended to have three signatures, but a group of notes that had been signed by Hart and How were taken in a Revolutionary War military raid and were placed in circulation prior to the third signatures' having been added. Although the event was well publicized and the notes declared invalid, this note is clear testimony to the fact that some indeed circulated for a fair amount of time. We've seen a few others grading either New or About New, but this is the first well circulated example we've seen from this looted group.
