Connecticut Revolutionary War Bonds

Manuscript Pay Order signed by various officials, 1780-82 making payment with "Connecticut Currency." Great for Colonial collectors. Fine to VF. Rare! $50.00

Peter Colt, grandfather of the famous Connecticut gun maker, Samuel Colt. This 1789-90s Connecticut State Treasury-Office Document exchanges Revolutionary War Interest Bearing Notes for other notes. It is not only boldly signed by Peter Colt, but also by Jedediah Huntington, important Brigadier General in the Revolutionary War. These Treasury Office documents are Choice Near mint condition. Scarce!
