Connecticut "June 7, 1776 5s
Note #2486 Slash cancel" Gem Crisp Uncirculated

Reference #: CC1
"Bright white paper and relatively dark ink gives this bill a clean bold appearance. Crisp, with even and adequate margins outlining all features. Faint red signature of George Wylles. Slash cancelled. Upon redemption, these notes were cancelled either by a slash or hole cut. Uncancelled notes are very much the exception to the rule and command a significant premium. Throughout most of the 1700s, many Colonies used the British system of pounds, shillings and pence, with there being 12 pence in a shilling and 20 shillings in a pound. How that later translated into American Dollars varied by State, time and economic circumstances."

Connecticut "June 19, 1776 1s3d
Note #5217 Slash cancel" Gem Crisp Uncirculated

Reference #: CC2
"A lovely note that is only lightly and evenly toned and free of any problems. Signed by William Pitkin in clear reddish ink. Eric Newman notes in ""The Early Paper Money of America"" that, ""Some Connecticut bills are slash or hole cancelled and others show redemption registration by the comptroller in ink"". This note reveals the latter, along with being slash cancelled, showing in red ink on the lower reverse of the word ""Registered"" followed by a signature appearing to read J. Jeffery. ex. Heritage 2004 Orlando CAA #338."
