    Description

    Albany, NY- Albany February 17, 1776 Personal Promissory Note $5/8 (5s) Repaired Fine.
    The last of the Albany notes, with only the $1/6 example missing from this offering. The only Cuyler listed in the Newman reference as a signer is Jacob, however the signature "Abraham Cuyler" is observed on this example along with the $1/8 and his name appears in the records of the Committee. The $1/2 piece listed above includes the signature of Jacob Cuyler. Both signatures appear quite similar, so it is possible the same person signed using two different first names. Abraham C. Cuyler was mayor of Albany from 1770-78. A tape repair is observed on the back, reinforcing a horizontal split that was contemporarily sewn together as evidenced by the pinholes.
