This note will make a nice addition to any Colonial currency collection. Colonial issues preceded the Continental Notes by many decades, and some are quite rare. These notes are in demand among collectors and rising in value due to the limited numbers printed. One of the last issues to be denominated in British coinage as we declared our Independence from Britain the previous year. Interestingly, printed on coarse blue paper to deter counterfeiting.
