    Description

    New Jersey March 25, 1776 £6 PCGS Choice About New 58. This is a delightful example of this scarce and highly coveted tricolor New Jersey note. The £6 had a printing of a mere 3125 notes. The ornate border designs and elaborate emblem add to the appeal of this beautifully printed note. Traces of embossing are visible through the holder. The first Director of the United States Mint, David Rittenhouse, engraved the decorative border for these £6 notes. He included his last name within the design of the left border near the center. Rittenhouse (1732-96) was an internationally known astronomer and scientist. The signatures of Robert Smith, Jonathan Johnston, and John Smyth remain dark on this example.
