Note #11179 (weak)" Fine

Delaware "John J. Ford, Jr." "February 28, 1746 10s
Note #7163" Good

Reference #: CC7
"A relatively rare Benjamin Franklin printed issue, unpriced in Newman. Notes from this year bear the first use of Franklin's reverse nature print designs. These bills were printed on thin paper subject to deterioraton with extended use, which the current example definitely saw, showing splitting at its folds. The back of this note has a horizontal reinforcing strip and is mounted at the top edge of a green paper card. Printed by Benjamin Franklin. ex. Stacks 05/04 Lot 716 John J. Ford, Jr., Part 3. "

Delaware "John J. Ford, Jr." "May 1, 1758 20s
Note # is faded Lion" Good

Reference #: CC8
"Another note from the John Ford Collection. This bill has the look of a Fine or slightly better, but it split in half and was sewn together contemporaneously. Additionally, in the words of the Stack's Ford cataloguer, it was ""washed once"", which likely explains why the signatures and bill number cannot now be made out. Printing on this note remains bold, B. Franklin is quite clear. ex. Stacks 05/04 Lot 723 John J. Ford, Jr., Part 3. ex. T. James Clarke Collection. "

Delaware "John J. Ford, Jr." "June 1, 1759 15s
Note #91726 Horse" Extra Fine

Reference #: CC9
"Another superior Franklin note from the Ford Collection. Toning of the paper is only moderately faded from its original color, while the print is relatively dark, especially on the obverse. With ample margins around all edges, there are, however, three small worm holes at the upper obverse right, which are fairly well hidden. The signers are clear in brown ink, and the horizontal fold is apparent from the reverse only. An exceptionally strong grade for this or any Franklin issue, which can only be fully appreciated if one has spent time looking at the average surviving issues. Worthy of the finest collection. Printed by Benjamin Franklin, David Hall. Signed by Wm. Armstrong, David Hall, John Barnes. ex. Stacks 01/05 Lot 1447 John J. Ford, Jr., Part VIII. "
