Here are the Continental Currency notes of the July 22nd, 1776 Resolution:

Comments:

(1) Heritage has always maintained that this is the 3rd rarest CC issue to find. I disagree. Other than the $2 note, I have had many of these notes over the years.

(2) No $2 note is posted here. I have been outbid in my attempts to secure an EF+ with clear signatures and serial number.

(3) A couple of these notes need upgrading. I am always on the Hunt.

Ben Franklin explained this motto to mean “Bear with me, or let me alone; or thus, Either support or leave.” The bush is believed to mean America, the bleeding hand is Britain. The nature print on the back is of betony and sage.

Thanks for posting these collection images. I've got a soft spot in my heart for Continentals.
