    Rhode Island July 2, 1780 $4 PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ. This beautifully printed example payable in Spanish Milled Dollars remains quite attractive and is one of only 2600 issued. Hall and Sellers printed these notes on watermarked paper with CONFEDE on one line and RATION below. Former counterfeiter for the British Henry Dawkins engraved the face border cuts as well as the back cuts surrounding the emblems. The emblems and mottos were also used for the Jan. 14, 1779 issue of Continental Currency. This $4 includes an emblem with a wild boar that is charging into a spear with the motto AUT MORS AUT VITA DECORA (either death or an honorable life). Thomas Rumreill and Adam Comstock signed this example and the guaranty was signed by Joseph Clarke.
