An incredibly rare and valuable 18. During the height of the Revolutionary War, the Continental Congress needed finding a way to pay the newly found American army.
In 1775, the Continental Currency was first printed to supplement income. And while the value of these notes depreciated in value throughout the war, they hold significant historical and financial value today. These notes hold a reminder of the horrors of uncontrolled inflation and provide an important view into the history of American finance. This thirty-five-dollar note was printed in Philadelphia by Hall and Sellers in 1779. [Philadelphia:] Hall and Sellers, 1779.
