Early Paper Money of America / Connecticut / 1733 July 10 redated May 1740

From 1736 through 1739 the Treasury was authorized from time to time to reissue redeemed bills to cover Colony expenses. £4,000 in Old Tenor legal tender bills was issued under the May 1740 Act for military bounties and the expense of an expedition against the Spanish West Indies. New Tenor bills under a contemporaneous act could not be prepared in time, so the plates for the prior issue were modified by adding "May, 1740" and reused. Back is typeset. Printer was Timothy Green. These bills used the same signers as prior issue except that George Wyllys was substituted for Hezekiah Wyllys.
