An attractive, well printed example; this Cape Henlopen Lighthouse note has plate letter B and was signed by Jacob Winey, Frederick Kuhl, and Charles Jervis. Kuhl served on the Council of Safety of the Province of Pennsylvania which essentially was in charge of the militia. £12,000 worth of notes were issued in support of the construction of the Cape Henlopen Lighthouse.

The lighthouse was abandoned in 1924 and succumbed to the elements in 1926.
