The one that started it all, I bought this in Waldorf, MD when I was a teenager, a lucky find - it is not cut out cancelled and worth 2x as much because of it.

They were cancelled on redemption. Most of the Colonial US notes were eventually paid out, sometimes up to 30 years later, and usually for about a cent on the dollar, and at that for new long term bonds. Around 99% of the Massachusetts notes from the 1780 Federal Guaranty were redeemed and paid. They either had the hole punched through, or a triangular piece cut out near the signatures to cancel them. The $5 bill is unusual, and a neat find at an antique mall near Washington DC when I was a teenager.

 

This is an old thread, kind of forgot about it. I have quite a few others from other states etc. that sometime in the future I should sell, I have not collected them in a long time.
