    Description

    Salem, NC - "We or either of us "Samuel Stots/Stotz (& Conrad Kreuser)," promise to pay the bearer, Three Pence on demand. October 22, 1803 Newman UNL PCGS Choice About New 58.
    These small format notes have interesting bee vignettes at the lower left on the 3 pence denominations. The others have ornamental designs and the borders vary with the denominations.

    The area that became known as Salem was originally settled in 1753 by members of the Moravian Church. Although it was believed for many years that the spelling of the last name of the first signer of this piece was Stots, the signer was actually Samuel Stotz. Some surviving examples of these notes were fully signed by both Samuel Stotz and Conrad Kreuser, as is the case with this note. Both Stotz and Kreuser are interred in the Salem Moravian Graveyard.
