Several later colonial era emissions including most Continental Congress and Pennsylvania emissions are in this general price range (with some exceptions). Some other common emissions have even lower values (as MA 1780 and MD of 1770 and 1774 emissions) while other issues are rarer and command higher prices. Rarity is more important than age, for example a one shilling note from the New Jersey emission of June 22, 1756 is valued at $174 in crisp uncirculated condition while a Massachusetts note of May 25,1775 is valued at $3,500 in very fine condition.
