    Scarce Vermont 2s6d PMG Fine 12

    Vermont February 1781 2s6d PMG Fine 12. This was the only Vermont Colonial issue, making Vermont a difficult state to obtain. The design on this rare note includes thirteen joined links along with one loose link. That link represents Vermont's objection to being excluded from being among the original colonies that asserted statehood. The accompanying motto is VERMONT CALLS FOR JUSTICE. This issue was printed on thin weak paper and only 3600 of these scarce 2s6d notes were included. Judah Paddock Spooner and Timothy Green printed these notes in Westminster. That same year they began printing The Vermont Gazette or Green Mountain Post Boy. Spooner actually managed the press as Green was still active in New London. The note has had some restorations as are typically seen and they were mentioned by PMG, however this example remains mostly intact.
