    Rare Broadside Proclamation Regulating Colonial Currency 1705.
    The size is approximately seven by eight inches for this broadside with a Bartholomew Green of Boston imprint. It reads in part, "Whereas Her Majesty (Queen Anne) by Her Royal Proclamation for Settling and Ascertaining the current Rates of Foreign Coines, (sic) in her Majesties Colonies and Plantations in America...That all foreign Coins be reduced to the same current Rates within all her Dominions in America, according to their Weight and Value, and just proportion, which each coin ought to have to the other, as in the said Proclamation is particularly set forth and expressed." It finishes with, "God Save the Queen" in bold letters. Included with this lot is a page from a Swann Auction Galleries catalogue dated May 27, 1948 that lists this broadside as lot 55. Also, the invoice from that 1948 auction is included. These items are not graded. The broadside has been folded into eighths and it has a couple of edge splits and a couple of pinholes. The catalogue page has a hole at upper left and a paper flap. The invoice has toned. There will be no returns on this lot for any reason. (Total: 3 items)
