    Rare Rhode Island Group

    Rhode Island June 1780 6s; 10s; 20s (2); 30s (2) Very Good or Better. These are very rare notes authorized by the June 1780 session of the General Assembly of the Rhode Island legislature. A mere £20,000 in notes were printed. We have seen very few notes from this issue over the years. In fact the Friedberg catalog has the entire issue incorrectly denominated in dollars and unpriced. These six notes were held by a piece of paper that was folded around them and written on the paper is, "Rhode Island Paper Money of various denominations issued at the June Session 1780 - Given me by Miss Hannah Hazard of Jamestown Aug. 18, 1859 -." The piece of paper comes with this lot. Most of the notes show some edge wear with the 6s note having a small internal hole. A great currency grouping that includes rarity and history. (Total: 6 notes)
