Adam B. writes: I have a piece of Colonial Currency for Maryland dated in April of 1774. for the amount of 1/6 of a Dollar. It is in good to fair condition. I am trying to find out how much it is worth so I can appraise my collection. Please help. I can’t seem to find a price guide on the web. Thank you.
The note is dated April 10, 1774, Maryland 1/6 dollar. Similar notes were issued in various colonies to alleviate the shortage of coins. The notes before 1730 are rare but the later Revolutionary period issues seem to be in abundant supply, especially in average or lower grades. Value in Good: about $10-$14.
