Banknote: Continental, February, 17, 1776, back
The back of this Benjamin Franklin–designed banknote shows thirteen linked rings
representing the colonies and the legends “We Are One” and “American Congress.”
To hamper the production of counterfeits, the paper, made at Ivy Mills in
Chester County, Pennsylvania, contains blue fibers and mica flakes.
