    Description

    Rhode Island May 1786 10s PCGS Extremely Fine 45PPQ. Embossing is visible through the holder on this nicely margined example that was signed by Samuel Allen and Elijah Cobb. These notes were printed by Southwick and Barber. Solomon Southwick was the son of a fisherman. However, with the assistance of a local philanthropist, he was able to receive an education. Southwick and Henry Barber were only in business together for a brief period. The depreciation of paper currency led to Southwick's financial downfall and he was unable to recover from it. He died on Dec. 23, 1797 at the age of 66.
