Per Ray Williams (12/2020), the Library Company of Philadelphia has three printing blocks from the Franklin & Hall company used to produce Delaware 1759 and 1760 notes. Two of these were used for the 1760 notes, one for the 30 shilling issue, the back leaf print block with three leaves, and for the 40 shilling note, the front top border edge block reading “TWO POUNDS” with a backward “D."
