Full title: Description of the paper money issued by the Continental Congress of the United States and the several colonies
Author: John W. Haseltine
Published 1872
Publisher: Author
48 pages
12 MB

Abstract:
MANY collectors of the paper money issued by the American Colonies and the Continental Congress, have felt the need of a work that would assist them in forming their collections, by giving them some knowledge of the actual existence of the different notes. The works that have previously been issued on this subject have given the date and denomination of the different notes known to have been issued, but have furnished no information as to what notes were really attainable.

The author of this work has carefully examined all collections that were available, and while of course there may be errors of omission, he still trusts that his efforts will supply, partially, a need that has long been felt, and hopes that it will be of considerable assistance to those forming collections; and, if he meets with sufficient encouragement -.in this new field, will issue at a later date a work upon a larger and more detailed scale, with more plates of the rare and valuable, or interesting notes.
