    Description

    Vermont Treasury Certificate £5 March 25, 1785 Anderson 2 PCGS Choice About New 55.
    Our archive shows that we sold only one other example from Sunderland. A different denomination and a slightly lower grade. That piece realized $1,725 in 2008. This Sunderland note is far rarer than the usually seen Tinmouth variety. It bares the bold dark brown signature of Ira Allen, the brother of Ethan Allen. Ira was one of the founders of Vermont and a leader of the Green Mountain Boys. Throughout the Revolution and the early years of the republic of Vermont, Ira Allen was one of the foremost men in the Vermont government, serving successively as a member of the Committee of Safety, then as Treasurer and Surveyor General. He signed this note during his term as Treasurer. Allen was also the man who designed the seal of the State of Vermont. Fully uncirculated save for a horizontal center fold, and heavily embossed.
