    Description

    Salem, NC - "We or either of us "Samuel Stots/Stotz (& Conrad Kreuser)," promise to pay the bearer, Four Pence on demand. October 22, 1803 Newman UNL PCGS Choice About New 58PPQ.
    The PCGS holder lists the spelling of the last name of the signer of this piece as Stots, as was believed for many years, however the signer was actually Samuel Stotz. Members of the persecuted Moravian Church settled in North Carolina on a large tract they named Wachovia. Although established as a town in 1776, Salem did not become the congregation's administrative center until 1772. This lightly handled, fully signed piece bears Kreuser's signature.
