    Description

    Pennsylvania- Sharp Delaney Related Fiscal Instrument $13.45 Oct. 14, 1797 PMG Choice Extremely Fine 45 Net.
    A fiscal document that was executed while Sharp Delaney was serving as the Collector of Customs, a position to which he was appointed by President George Washington in 1789 and in which he served until his death in 1799. Mr. Delany was born c. 1739 and served as a Colonel in the American Revolutionary War at which time he became a close personal friend of General George Washington. This document, issued during his tenure, does have some adhesive stains and ink burn, but is nonetheless an interesting piece of early financial Americana. Also, Thomas Fitzsimons was a signer of the US Constitution.
