Delaware, General Assembly, 10 shillings, January 1, 1776, serial 72676, PMG Choice AU 58 EPQ. Fr-DE-79. Nice example of a colonial Delaware type note printed by James Adams just a few months prior to the Declaration of Independence when references to "the Reign of His Majesty Geo. the 3d. (George the Third)" were still found on bank notes. On the reverse, underneath a sheaf of wheat vignette, the note bears the common warning found on colonial notes: "To Counterfeit is Death." It is clear this note was printed on the bottom right corner of a sheet as the right and bottom margins are particularly wide and show some crudity from the paper manufacture process of the time; trivial handling is noted in the right margin yet does not affect the design itself, the printing as well as the penned serial and signatures very bold. PMG #1022232-007.
