Description Province of Georgia 1769 Lighthouse Certificate 1 Pound Written "9" in Date Fr. GA-47a. PCGS Fine 15 Apparent. This is another interesting and distinctive certificate style note from the Provincial Georgia period. The square shape is similar to the 1766-1777 Written Date Certificates. The typeset obligations are in black and red with the bold LIGHT-HOUSE ON TYBEE ISLAND prominently placed. At the lower right is a small vignette of that lighthouse. Fully issued with the multiple signatures required for use. A solid face appearance is all around, but noted are "Splits, Tears, and Minor Edge Damage; Tape Repairs," the repairs done long ago with old style strip tape.
