    David Brearley Signature - Signer of the United States Constitution

    New Jersey June 9, 1780 $2 PMG Very Fine 20.
    12,000 $2s were printed for use in this emission. The back has the emblem of grain being threshed by a flail with the motto TRIBULATIO DITAT (Affliction improves it). The design elements and signatures are still clear. The signers include David Brearley, later a signer of the United States Constitution, Philemon Dickinson, and Joseph Borden, who in 1765 was a delegate to the Stamp Act Congress. PMG notes some splits and tape residue on the back. These stains do not affect either the Brearly or Borden signatures.
    From the Colonial Valley Collection, Part II

    Estimate: $200 - up.
