This note has seen minimal wear, but is intact without any serious issues typical of these continental issues, considering they are well over 200 years old. This note is an affordable example of colonial era paper money used during the Revolutionary War.

Continental issues were once scorned by the public, giving rise to the saying, "Not worth a continental." These notes are now in demand among collectors and rising in value due to the limited numbers printed.

The necessity of financing military operations during the Revolutionary War forced the Continental Congress to print paper money, even though they were looked upon by the public as virtually worthless at the time.

These notes were printed by Hall and Sellers of Philadelphia. That firm was formerly known as Benjamin Franklin and Hall.

You can see pieces of mica that were mixed into the paper as an additional deterrent against counterfeiting. This is a scarce note, with a popular design and a great piece of history!
