These notes were printed by James Parker of Woodbridge, New Jersey. This note has seen moderate wear, but considering it is well over 200 years old, still a great collectible! This example has a heavy center crease, which is typical of many of these Colonial issues, but still intact.
These 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.
A great piece of history is found in this well preserved Colonial Currency Note from the State of New Jersey. This 12 Shilling note was authorized by the state legislature on March 25, 1776. This note had an original printing of just 37,500 so the population of one this nice is extremely small. Bold Red and black printing with embossing readily evident. An superior example of paper currency printed just prior to our Independence from Britain.
