    Description

    New York- New York City February 20, 1790 3d Good.
    The 3d was the highest of the three denominations of this Corporation of the City of New York issue. These small size notes were authorized according to Newman, "to satisfy the want of small change and to prevent the great losses to the poorer classes of citizens from the circulation of base coppers." This example certainly did serve its intended purpose as small change. It is listed only as "rare" in Friedberg and values are not listed in the Newman reference.
