    Description

    New York March 5, 1776 $1/3 Very Fine-Extremely Fine. Nice margins are seen on this note and the printing remains dark. The signatures of Daniel Dunscomb, Jr. and C. Duyckinck, Jr. are bold as well. The $1/3 notes were equivalent to two shillings and eight pence. The emblems and mottoes for the March 5, 1776 fractional denominations were copied from a book by J.C. Weigels. This example includes three wreaths with HIS ORNARI AUT MORI (to be decorated with these or to die). Samuel Loudon printed these notes on thick paper. A native of Ireland, Loudon's printing shop was located on Water street. He passed away on Feb. 24, 1813 at Middletown Point, NJ. The fold line is quite hard and the top center is split a bit on this example.
