Early Paper Money of America / Virginia / 1775 July 17 Ordinance Large Size Notes

After the supply of new rag paper for the small notes prepared under the July 17, 1775 Ordinance was exhausted, the use "of other proper paper to make up the deficiency" was approved at the Dec. 1775 Session. Since some note forms engraved by Henry (Harry) Ashby were left over from the Sept. 1773 emission, such forms were used by filling in appropriate text in ink and by eliminating inapplicable portions by the use of parentheses. Signers were Philip Johnson, William Norvell, and John Tazewell. Countersigned on the back by Robert Carter Nicholas.
