I purchased a collection of some old coins which had some US Colonial/Continental notes along with it. I know very little about them, and honestly, I'm looking to resell them to someone who'll be able to appreciate them more than I can.

In short, I'm looking to get some information on them, along with an idea of what to sell them for. I know they're rough, so my expectations aren't outlandish, but I'd just like to know what a fair price might be!

Thank you for your insight!

They look good, but I don't know enough to tell you if these are genuine or reproductions from the presses at Colonial Williamsburg. Either way, someone had a thing for South Carolina.

South Carolina notes are tougher notes to find. They are listed in Freidburg as SC-113, SC-119, SC-125, SC-111, and SC-132 respectively. Friedburg has values listed for the first 2 notes as $1000 ea. in VG (lowest shown) but both of those notes are backed and damaged so I would grade them AG-G. The third note isn't backed but is missing pieces so I would guess around AG-G in grade and Freiburg lists its lowest value at VG as $750. The 4th note is backed and damaged so AG as well but with the lowest listing at VG of $1500. The last note is the nicest of the batch at Fine to Fine+,but is also the lowest in value with a F-15 listed at $500. Those notes are scarce so they do have value but they are in lower grades so I wouldn't plan my retirement around them. :)

I also just checked the signatures in the Newman reference on early U.S. paper and it looks like they are correct for signers of each of the issues.

What do the reproductions from the presses at Colonial Williamsburg look like ?

Are there fakes as well ?

I've occasionally seen colonial notes in dealers trays at shows but I don't know enough to know whether they're genuine and I wonder whether the dealer does.
