History: “An emission of £100,000 in legal tender bills of credit had been planned since May 10, 1768 but never obtained the consent of the English king. Following the outbreak of the Revolution, the issue was emitted as proclamation money. The notes were made legal tender on September 20, 1776 and recalled by January 1, 1780. David Rittenhouse engraved and signed the left border of the front of the £6 note. Printed in Burlington by Isaac Collins. The front of the notes are in red and black with the two highest denominations in red and blue. The back contains a sage leaf nature print rather than the engraving Collins user on the previous emission. Printed on paper containing mica flakes with a ‘New Jersey’ watermark.” – http://www.coins.nd.edu/ColCurrency/CurrencyText/NJ-03-25-76a.html
