New Jersey issued colonial notes in the pound sterling system between 1709 and 1776. The 1780 issues are in the dollar system but then the 1781, 1783, and 1786 issues are back in the pound sterling system of currency. The leaf in the central vignette on the reverse is a sage leaf (Source: Standard Catalog Of World Paper Money specialized issues). Some examples of this note can be found signed by John Hart, who also signed the Declaration of Independence. Notes bearing his signature can fetch an additional premium.
