Continental Currency

One piece of colonial currency that was part of a series issued by the Continental Congress on February 17, 1776 and was printed by Hall and Sellers in Philadelphia. It a $5 note (“Five Spanish Milled Dollars”) and has excellent printer’s devices on both sides. The iron-based handwritten ink has unfortunately faded and the serial number is not visible anymore, but one of the authorizing signatures is still visible (it may be that of Horatio Johnson of Maryland).

What visitors say

Thank you for touring us around the Joel Lane House. Our architecture and the way we live has come a long way throughout the years. You really gave us great information on what life was like back when Joel Lane was alive. They lived in very harsh conditions with no heat or air condition which would be very tough today. I appreciate all your help and time put in to tour us around the house.
