Maryland Obsolete Money N. A. Chafee one dollar Baltimore
A one dollar note drawn on what I believe was N. A. Chafee of Baltimore Maryland. The signature is hard to read but I believe that is correct, Mr. Chafee was most likely some type of merchant in the city of Baltimore during the era of 1840. The center vignette shows a large Indian on a rock cliff overlooking the ocean, which has two ships. The terms of this Baltimore Maryland currency are as follows: I promise to pay in current notes, one dollar, to the bearer when presented in sums of five dollars. Then a large arched Baltimore underneath the terms.We have more than one N. A. Chafee Baltimore scrip notes available for sale at Brandywine General Store but we have included a picture of each that we currently have in our stock.
