    Description

    Rhode Island July 2, 1780 $8 PMG About Uncirculated 55 EPQ. This appealing $8 note was payable in Spanish Milled Dollars. Henry Dawkins, formerly a counterfeiter for the British, engraved the border cuts on the face as well as the back cuts for this issue. The emblems and mottos were also used for the Jan. 14, 1779 issue of Continental Currency. The strings of varying lengths on the harp emblem represent the 13 Colonies. The phrase is MAJORA MINORIBUS CONSONANT (the large colonies and the small colonies are in harmony). A mere 2600 of these notes were printed. Hall and Sellers used watermarked paper with CONFEDE on one line and RATION below. Caleb Harris and Thomas Rumreill signed this example while the guaranty on the back was signed by Jonathan Arnold.
