    United States of America/Rhode Island - Continental Loan Office in the State of Rhode Island Second, Third, Fourth Bill of Exchanges for $36/180 Livres Tournois, Payable at Paris April 20, 1781 Anderson US98-11A Hessler X32E.
    A partial sheet of Second, Third, and Fourth Bills. We have only seen a couple of individual First Bills and there are no known sheets complete with all four Bills. Bill of Exchange signed by Hopkinson and countersigned by Clarke. Francis Hopkinson is a signer of the Declaration of Independence and Joseph Clarke a signer of Rhode Island colonial currency. It is graded PMG Extremely Fine 40 Net with ink burn where broad penned strokes were applied. These are legitimate rarities as we only have sold a couple examples previously. The two partial sheets of three that we sold since 2015 realized $3,525 and $3,997.50, with both being of inferior quality to this pristine item. A trophy prize for the astute colonial fiscal paper collector.
