No.18479. Signed by Coombe and Smith(?). Crisp Uncirculated and close to Choice. Bold and well printed with the face margins excellent. Light rubs on the corners. Premium quality for this handsome type.

Continental Congress. February 17, 1776. $1/3. No.266354. Signed by S. Morris. The ''Fugio'' style...
No.266354. Signed by S. Morris. The ''Fugio'' style change bills with motifs by Benjamin Franklin. Crisp Uncirculated with exceptional printing. The upper left margin is trimmed in slightly and the wide right margin is unevenly trimmed, but away from the cutting line.

Continental Congress. February 17, 1776. $1. No.100693. Signatures difficult to read. Very Choice...
No.100693. Signatures difficult to read. Very Choice Almost Uncirculated. A boldly printed note with a very slight corner fold and trimmed in slightly across the top. The other three margins on the face are broad. The $1 and $2 notes on the Continental Currency series are much scarcer in high grade than the catalogue value reflects in Newman. Collectors attempting high grade sets of...  more

No.58425. Signed by Sam Sellers and B.Brannan. Crisp Uncirculated. Slightly tight at the top, otherwise very fresh and original. Great type note for this series date.

No.51058. Signed by Garrison and Watkins. Choice Almost Uncirculated. A sheet fold across the top is barely visible and very slight corner rubs. Well margined and another fresh, collector type set friendly note.

Continental Congress. May 9, 1776. $7. No.51092. Signed by Garrison and Watkins. Choice Crisp Uncirculated...
No.51092. Signed by Garrison and Watkins. Choice Crisp Uncirculated and virtually a Gem example. With the exception of a very slightly rubbed lower left corner, the note is ''all there''. Broad and even margins with a special ''cut from the sheet'' evenness. Well printed, even centering and reflective mica. Continental notes of this nearly impeccable quality are vastly undervalued compared...  more

No.175??. Signed by Lewis and Tho. Morris. Very Fine. Hard fold and surface soiling.

No.228580. Signed by Wister and Gardner. Crisp Uncirculated and close to Gem. A lovely note with broad and even margins. There are two ''dings'', one on each bottom corner.
