Pennsylvania Colonial Currency 10 Shillings October 1, 1773

Pennsylvania Colonial Currency 10 Shillings October 1, 1773

You are offerding on a pre-Revolutionary War, 10-shilling note of Colonial Currency, issued on October 1, 1773 in Pennsylvania.

This note was printed by Hall and Sellers in Philadelphia, and the paper contains mica flakes, some of which are still visible. The issue was intended to revive the loan office system.

The Penn family arms are on the front, containing the words MERCY/JUSTICE, and the top border is printed in both red and black ink. In addition, some of the text on the front is in red ink, printed in a way that forms the Roman numeral designation “X”.

The spelling of the colony name is "Pensylvania", which is the continuation of an anti-counterfeiting measure used by Franklin and Hall. The denomination is also indicated by the two crowns located below the arms. There were three signers: Alexander Tod, James Hartley, and Joseph Mifflin.

A farm scene is on the back, part of which appears to be a rainbow. It also contains the denomination in text and the words “To Counterfeit is DEATH”, and “Printed by HALL and SELLERS”

Signers: Alex(ander) Tod, James Hartley, and Jos(eph) Mifflin (This note is a bit unusual in that all three signatures are in brown ink—typically, one is in red ink)

Serial Number: 8038 (bold and readable in brown ink)

Original Population: 28,300 Notes

Friedberg Number: PA-167

The edges are in excellent condition with slight rounding and folding at the corners. The signatures and serial number are bold. The note has a sharp main crease, and also has some minor stains of unknown origin, including dampstains. There are also two small spots on the back side, one of which appears to be caused by insect damage. All things considered, this is a very nice note for its age. Please check the scans carefully.

We will be happy to combine shipping and answer any questions you may have.
