DescriptionNew York September 2, 1775 $3 Fine-Very Fine.
Only 5000 of these notes were printed by John Holt. He was a native of Virginia and served as the mayor of Williamsburg. After moving to New York, he began working with printer James Parker and eventually set up his own shop. The signature of Theodore Van Wyck remains bold on this example, while the signature in red ink has faded, but we can still see Abraham Brinckerhoff. The vignette on the back is the Ten Commandments. The motto is LEX REGIT ARMA TUENTUR (law rules, weapons protect). The warning to counterfeiters was discontinued with this issue. Minor soiling for the grade is observed.
