Description:

FACSIMILE 1780 Massachusetts Bay 'Eight Dollars' United States Guaranty Note (paper money bill), 3 3/4" x 2 7/8", antiqued parchment-type paper. Very Good condition (folded in half but this was done intentionally to resemble an authentic note; small 1cm split at this fold). Massachusetts-Bay was the first paper money issuer in the New World, as well as the first government-sponsored issuer of paper money. These notes were issued with the date of 5 May 1780 and were issued with three signers, two for the State of Massachusetts and one for the United States. The first signature on this note is of Loammi Baldwin, one of those amazing figures from American history who would go on to become a military hero. The second signature on this note is of Richard Cranch a prominent clock maker who would serve as postmaster in Braintree then later on become a Massachusetts state senator. The Latin legend Depressa resurgit translates to "Having been pressed down it rises up again". FACSIMILE/REPRODUCTION. Bookseller Inventory #
